The UC Davis Health System Department of Emergency Medicine has an opening for a one or two year Medical Simulation Fellowship based at the state of the art 7000 sq. ft. Center for Virtual Care. The center includes mannequins from all major platforms (METI, Gaumard and Laerdal)  and offers learning environments such as a trauma bay, 6 bay emergency department, inpatient unit, and operating suite.  Task training and procedure rooms are similarly designed to offer a wide variety of educational experiences. The center also contains SonoSim, HeartWorks, AngioSim, and Laparoscopic/Endoscopic trainers, two full-time Sim Techs, tie-ins with the Standardized Patient and Cadaver teams, and it’s own research and development lab.

The Center is used by a diverse learning group that includes health science students, graduate medical trainees, ancillary health professionals, and medical staff. The fellowship curriculum is based around the elements of simulation and medical education, research, operations and administration. Fellows spend a majority of their time creating, performing, evaluating, and supervising medical simulation training both in the Sim Center and in the hospital (where In-Situ mock codes are regularly performed) while learning about simulation technology, education theory, sim-research and center operations.  

Emergency Medicine Board Eligible Fellows will work part-time as a clinical instructor/fully credentialed Attending in the emergency department at the UC Davis Medical Center and Mather Veterans Hospital supervising residents and students during shifts. Opportunities exist for non-emergency physicians as well. Research is encouraged and well supported.

Fellows may select a one-year fellowship with certificate or a two-year fellowship with a Master’s degree through the University of California Davis' NIH-supported Mentored Clinical Research Training Program if desired.

Interested EM applicants must have completed an ACGME approved emergency medicine program and should contact the Director, Dr. Ian Julie. Applicants from other department/specialties are also welcome and should contact Dr. Julie with any questions.
