Congratulations to Dr. Kiersten Carter for receiving the 2017 EMRA Airway Lab Scholarship! This scholarship allows a resident member of EMRA to attend Dr. Rich Levitan’s Airway Lab.
Dr. Carter was born and raised in Pennsylvania. She received her undergraduate degree from Franklin and Marshall College and attended medical school at the Pennsylvania State University. When looking for a residency program, she decided to explore geographic regions in which she had never lived to give her the opportunity to work with patient populations and care for pathologies she had not prior seen in her educational journey on the east coast. She ended up in the Bay Area! Dr. Carter is a recent graduate of the Stanford University/Kaiser Permanente Emergency Medicine residency. She spent her last year serving as a chief resident and working on medical education and simulation research and flipped classroom procedural curriculum development. She will be continuing to work with the Stanford/Kaiser EM residency as an attending at their community site, Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara. She looks forward to taking what she learns at the Airway Course and incorporating the knowledge gained back into the residency didactic and procedural curriculum.
Congratulations Dr. Carter!
