Our Approach

We want what you learn to be there when you need it. Our mission is to transform the learning experience in airway training; to enhance knowledge translation where and when it counts. Our goal is to create an immersive, interactive, and self-directed training style that is focused on meeting the next generation of learners where they live.

Airway Learning On Your Time

In the world of emergency airway, there’s an important difference between knowing the path and walking the path. That’s why we built PAC around a single simple idea: that any airway knowledge is useless if it can’t be successfully translated into action during the stressful, and time-critical moments when it matters most. What you learn should function in the real world.

That’s why our diverse team of airway educators set out to design a better way. With a mission to improve knowledge translation, we developed an entirely new training platform. One that reaches far beyond traditional teaching styles; that draws from the creative arts and design thinking, and that explores the boundary between digital and physical space in order to enhance knowledge translation. Our education design team at PAC is committed to meeting learners where they live and. transforming the learning experience for the next generation of clinicians.

Learning On Your Time

Through the eyes of the expert

Masterclass style means you get to learn all the concepts and skills of emergency airway care through the eyes of the experts. Listen as they discuss how to apply what you learn in real-world situations, and then watch as they demonstrate the procedures and the tricks of the trade they rely on in their practice. Finally, explore all the engaging graphic content and bundled resources associated with each video in our deep dive sections. When your done, you will be ready to apply your skills at the bedside.

Meet the Experts, Join the Conversation, Connect to our virtual training lab,

We’re partnering with leaders in telemedicine, at the Center for Virtual Care, to develop innovative new tools that provide safe, efficient, realistic, and effective medical education built for today’s learning environment. Like our installations we’ve applied design thinking to transcend the limits of online learning: expanding our use of the virtual space to enhance your clinical performance in the real world.


Immersive, Interactive, Collaborative

Anatomy Lab Training

State of the art facilities

We have access to one of the most advanced anatomy labs in the country at Weill Cornell Medical College. We bring diverse faculty and provide state of the art equipment so you can get your your hands on all of it! This action packed day provides the opportunity to perform hundreds of intubations and other airway skills including surgical cricothyrotomy in the most anatomically realistic setting possible without it being a real patient.

Experience Next Generation Conference Design

meet the new interactive learning space

Learning installations are a unique transformation of the learning space. It explores a new frontier in medical education: merging of digital and physical space to create self-directed, immersive, interactive and collaborative learning experiences that meet the next generation of learners where they live. We seek design inspiration far outside of traditional medical education, so we can build learning spaces for the next generation of clinicians.

Merging Digital & Physical Space

The Learning Installation

Introducing The Interactive Poster


No more classrooms. Each theme based installation is built around a series of uniquely interactive posters: using impactful graphics, and embedded multimedia content that allows you to explore at your own pace and customize your journey in a way that best suits your learning needs. Then, use each poster within the space as a jumping off point for a more immersive experience in the physical space.

Theme Based & Narrative Driven


Through stories our learning becomes more powerful; embedding knowledge through our uniquely human experience. Each of our six installations are theme based so that concepts and skills can be organized into more effective cognitive constructs. Within these spaces you will also hear powerful stories from experienced clinicians and patients. Narratives that will help you understand the role human factors play in our successes and our failures. Stories that highlight why what we do matters, and why how we learn matters even more.

Simulation Challenges


High fidelity simulation, and other creative challenges such as escape the rooms are part of each installation. This component of the installation learning style allows you to solidify your new knowledge and skills by actively deploying them in a team-based environment. Debriefs by faculty help you identify areas of improvement in order to customize a path back through the installation’s content for even more focused learning. This iterative learning cycle between the digital and physical space helps to develop mastery.

Training Labs & Expert Coaching

Customized learning for your needs

Training labs and expert faculty are placed in key training stations within each installation. Each installation is an immersive “flipped classroom,” allowing you complete freedom to explore. Faculty are also free from having to teach in a one size fits all format. Instead of talking or lecturing at groups of passive learners, coaches can give you individualized feedback. The stress lab is just one of the many training labs integrated into PAC.
