    Program Director
    Associate Director, Education Fellowship
    Associate Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine, UCSF

    Dr. Sawtelle's main clinical activity is the supervision of medical students, residents and mid-level providers in the provision of direct patient care in the Emergency Department at Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno. The UCSF Fresno Emergency Department is the busiest trauma center in California and cares for a diverse, medically under-served patient population in the central valley.

    Dr. Sawtelle's quality improvement efforts are focused on development and implementation of inter-professional educational opportunities in the workplace. Under her direction, in-situ simulation-based patient safety curriculum was implemented in the Emergency Department based on actual patient safety events in our institution. These efforts further developed into a hospital-wide inter-professional simulation and mock code training program. Dr. Sawtelle partners with the hospital's code blue committee, nurse educators and hospital leadership to facilitate the opening of new patient care units and implementation of process changes. Over the past years, 400 nurses, patient care assistants, unit clerks, respiratory therapists and physicians have been trained.
