Philosophy of Care

I became an Emergency Medicine practitioner so that I could provide care to anyone in need, regardless of social, financial or insurance status. My professional career is dedicated to the health and well-being of any and all individuals in the need of urgent and emergent care.

My academic interests are centered around medical education and training (for all parties - patients, physicians, nurses, all associated professionals and interprofessional teams).

It has been and continues to be an honor and privilege to be able to serve the people of Sacramento and the surrounding region here at UC Davis Health.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Julie is an emergency medicine physician who works at UC Davis' adult and pediatric emergency departments as well as Veteran's Administration Mather Emergency Department. He is the medical director of the UC Davis Simulation Center (the Center for Virtual Care) and co-directs the Medical Education and Simulation Fellowship.

His academic interests include: cardiac arrest and arrhythmia management, advanced airway management, bedside ultrasound, sepsis care, quality improvement initiatives, resuscitation and team dynamics, utilization of technology in medical education and clinical care, and palliative care.


Research/Academic Interests

Dr. Julie's research focuses on improving patient outcomes and education for health care students/professionals through the use of medical simulation and validated, systematic educational techniques. As an educator and researcher, he is interested in assessing learning and cognitive and clinical skills through simulation activities. He's also interested in modern medical education through direct bedside teaching, telehealth services, medical simulation and social media.

Additional interests include health care policy, health care economics, team dynamics, medical resuscitation, system-based practice, narrative medicine, and the humanities in medicine.
