On-Site and Online Airway
Management / Conscious Sedation Training for 1 to 100+ clinicians
Schedule a complete, one day airway management workshop for your office, ASC, clinic, group, society or local anesthetic community, to be held at your hospital or facility on a date of your choosing.
The AOD team has held over 100 airway workshop events with groups of 1 to 100 or more clinicians. Each difficult airway course includes five to eight hours of highly coordinated didactics (see samples), and hands-on practice. The course content can be customized for your group of doctors, nurse anesthetists, nurses, first responders and others. Simulation, as well as a swine trachea lab, can be included.
Most AOD workshops occur on a Saturday from 8am until 3pm, though some groups choose other days or evenings for the event. (click the "Arrange a new workshop" button at the top of this page)
Affordable Group Options
The cost of an AOD event is based on the number of attendees, the source of CME credit, and travel costs for the AOD instructor(s). The Cost Estimator page will help you determine your group's costs as well as the per-attendee savings that an AOD event offers when compared to a similar national course.
Please feel free to download an AOD brochure, which includes a sample itinerary and course objectives.

Flipped Classroom Learning
(Save time and save money)
"Flipped classroom" is an educational model used at Yale University to improve learning efficiency. Each student uses online resources at his or her leisure, then comes to the classroom for higher level discussions. You'll experience the AOD didactic sessions at your own pace, and the AOD faculty comes to you for discussion, labs and simulation. AOD flipped classrooms may be especially useful for small groups.

Do you need a course for just one clinician? Choose on-line learning, a downloaded syllabus, and if elected, a visit to New Haven for one-on-one, hands-on instruction. Alternatively, an AOD instructor may be able to come to you, depending on location. (click the "Arrange a new workshop" button at the top of this page)
