C. Eric McCoy, MD, MPH, clinical professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine, has made multiple trailblazing contributions to the field of academic medicine. After completing his residency and an Emergency Medical Services and Disaster Medical Sciences Fellowship at UCI, McCoy became the founding director of the Medical Simulation Fellowship, mentoring countless medical students, residents and faculty physicians in some of the most innovative and novel medical technology of the 21st century.

Beyond our campus, he has taught Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Workshops at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, and also utilized telesimulation with UCI colleagues to deliver an emergency medical services (EMS) course on mass casualty incident (MCI) training to healthcare providers in Saudi Arabia.

Among the professional community, McCoy was recently elected as chair of the Emergency Medicine Section for the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSiH). “The Black community is important to me because it’s who I am, yet all communities are important to me because it’s who we are,” says McCoy. “I recognize and appreciate the fact that the multicultural communities that make up our world share many more similarities than differences.”
