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 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, and it’s own research and development lab.

The Center is used by a diverse learning group, which includes health science students, graduate medical trainees, ancillary health professionals, and medical staff. The fellowship curriculum is based around the elements of simulation education, research, operations and administration. Fellows spend a majority of their time creating, performing, evaluating, and supervising medical simulation training while learning about simulation center operations.  Emergency Medicine Board Eligible Fellows will work part-time as an attending in the emergency department at the UC Davis Medical Center and provide guidance to residents and students during shifts.  Research is encouraged and well supported.
Fellows may select a one-year fellowship or a two-year fellowship with a Master’s degree focused on education through the University of California Davis.
