AIRWAY

Work with world leaders in airway management with unparalleled in-situ and simulated learning and research opportunities. The broad airway scope of Dal EM residents gives us frequent exposure to difficult airway scenarios using state-of-the-art tools like fiberoptic scopes and video laryngoscopy - led by the AIME airway team. 

CADAVER

Practice life-saving skills frequently in our high-fidelity cadaver program unlike any other in the country. Skills sessions include opportunities to practice complex airway procedures, thoracotomies, thoracostomies, ultrasound, urological and suturing, and learner-directed sessions for skills practice.

With quarterly group counselling sessions, flexible maternity and paternity leave, and a culture of mutual support, our program respects the humanity and autonomy of our residents.
