Build Your Skills as a Medical Education Leader

Our one-year fellowship specializing in clinical teaching and simulation will help you develop the skills necessary to become a leader in simulation. You’ll design and lead simulation sessions with residents and clinical teams, while serving as a faculty member for the Emergency Medicine residency at Kaweah Health Medical Center.

The primary objective of the fellowship is to teach emergency physicians to be better teachers in the clinic and the classroom. By the end of your fellowship, you will be a leader who can conceive, design, implement and assess educational programs for a wide variety of learners. A heavy emphasis on simulation will prepare you to run a simulation center or serve as simulation director.
