Dr. J. Adam Law received his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada, where he is currently the Deputy Head of the Faculty of Medicine: Department of Anesthesia, Pain Management and Perioperative Medicine.
Law finds teaching to be a privilege, and loves being challenged by his students, whom he learns from every day. His advice to those learning more about airway management is to seek hands on experience, and to always start with the basics. “Get experience managing normal airways first,” he says. “That way you have a good base to the pyramid when it comes to managing difficult ones.”
When Law has a rare moment of free time, he likes to hike, play tennis, and spend time with family.
