Medical Simulation Fellowship

The UC Davis Medical Center Department of Emergency Medicine offers a one or two year Medical Simulation Fellowship based at the SHEALD Center for medical simulation and disaster preparedness on the UC Davis Medical Center campus. Fellows spend significant time creating, performing, reviewing and supervising medical simulation and virtual care exercises and scenarios and participate in resident simulation training as well as medical student simulation education. In addition, there is opportunity and expectation to participate in local disaster preparedness training using simulation, virtual care and telemedicine resources. Collaboration with partners including the military, law enforcement, EMS, and other groups involved in disaster planning will be a significant component of the program. Fellows will work part-time as an attending in the emergency department at the UC Davis Medical Center.

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.

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