Essential Procedures in Emergency Medicine is a procedure-based course specially designed to focus on wound care management, non-invasive orthopedic procedures and lumbar puncture skills. The objectives for each procedure include learning the indications, contraindications, equipment, technique, complications, sites, post procedure follow up and pearls needed to perform the procedures competently. Procedures will be practiced in a controlled setting on human cadavers and high fidelity task trainers. The participants will be divided into small groups of 4-5 students with direct supervision of highly skilled instructors.  Participants will have ample opportunity for guided practice of all procedures reviewed.



Our course faculty include board-certified emergency medicine physicians recognized in the field of emergency medicine education.  They have extensive experience both lecturing and providing skills labs for CME courses offered to physicians and physician extenders. They have authored numerous publications covering pertinent topics, such as procedural education, high-fidelity simulation, wound care, and emergency orthopedics.  They are fellowship-trained by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) in teaching and have received teaching awards from the emergency medicine residency program at the University of Maryland.  Our methods are based on educational theories of adult learning and procedural skill acquisition.  We offer guided, consistent practice opportunities, characterized by a gradual transfer of the skill from the teacher to the learner until proficiency is achieved.
