Dr. Erik G. Laurin is currently a Clinical Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of California, Davis. He is also the Director of the Emergency Airway Management Fellowship and the Vice Chair for Education in the Department of Emergency Medicine.
Dr. Laurin’s advice to those wanting to learn more about airway management is to say yes to any and all educational opportunities possible, both as a teacher or a student. When it comes to teaching, his favorite part of the job is expanding someone’s arsenal of techniques and knowledge so they can be better prepared for their next airway challenge. He also finds that he ends up learning just as much in return. “Likewise, I’m often taught by learners and improve my own skills,” he says.
When not working, Dr. Laurin and his wife are working on mastering the art of making wine at home.
