Medical Simulation Fellowship

The UC Davis Medical Center Department of Emergency Medicine offers 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 is used by a diverse learning group, which can include 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.  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.

Fellows may select a two-year fellowship option and obtain a Master’s degree with a dedicated focus in education through the University of California Davis, or to complete a one-year fellowship without the ability to earn the advanced degree.

Interested applicants should contact Joseph Barton, MD, MHMS, Medical Simulation Fellowship director. Applicants must have completed an ACGME approved Emergency Medicine training program.
