Critical Procedures in Emergency Medicine Course

The first session of the new Critical Procedures in Emergency Medicine course is scheduled for April 17th! The course, the first of it's kind to be offered at the University of Maryland, sold out very quickly and is scheduled to be offered again in October. Using a combination of classroom instruction and a cadaver lab, participants will have the opportunity to practice critical care invasive procedures in a controlled environment. The course directors, Drs. Mak Moayedi and Mike Abraham, designed the course with emergency medicine professionals in mind and structured it so participants will receive a 2:1 instructor to participant teaching environment and a 1:1 participant to cadaver experience.

The course will be offered again on October 29th as a pre-conference workshop to the 2nd Annual Crashing Patient Conference. Contact Kristin Cioffi for more information.
