The International EM Teaching Course
A week-long educational experience that combines didactic sessions, group discussions, and interactive workshops. As a medical educator, this conference will provide a framework for faculty development that will help you advance in your career. Get access to cutting-edge information that will dramatically improve your skills as a medical educator.
Join course director Amal Mattu and other University of Maryland faculty at The Crashing Patient conference in Baltimore on Oct 28-30, 2013.
This conference will address both parties at risk in emergency medicine--the patient and the provider. Learn optimal care of the sickest patients we see in daily ED practice--sepsis, cardiac ischemia, aortic dissection, etc--and how to bullet-proof yourself from the plaintiff attorneys.
