Co-Director, The Difficult Airway Course: Residency Edition
Associate Chair of Education
Residency Program Director
University of Florida College of Medicine
Dr. David Caro is the Residency Program Director at the University of Florida College of Medicine for the Department of Emergency Medicine in Jacksonville. He is also the co-director for The Difficult Airway Course: Residency Edition™.
When it comes to managing difficult airways, Dr. Caro has one main piece of advice: always approach emergent airways with no less than three plans, so there is always something to fall back on should anything fail. He loves teaching, especially the moments where he can see students applying what they’ve learned to real life scenarios. His interest in teaching came from his parents, and the way they raised him. “Both of my parents took every opportunity to teach what they could as I grew up. Their modeling had a strong influence on my interest and desire to educate.”
Dr. Caro has three sons, and is married to a fellow emergency physician.
