About the Course
The Emergency Medicine - An Intensive Boot Camp course has been designed by a nationally recognized emergency medicine faculty to provide participants with the essential information needed to practice in a modern-day emergency department or urgent care center. In addition to the detailed clinical content, each presentation will emphasize key documentation and risk management concepts.
The faculty consists of award-winning emergency medicine educators specifically chosen for their in-depth knowledge of emergency medicine, their ability to present information with passion and energy and their prior experience working in a collaborative environment. Each has participated as an invited speaker in hundreds of educational programs.
The course consists of 45 30-minute presentations and 7 30-minute question and answer sessions held over a 3.5 day period. Each lecture is intended to present the core information needed to assess and treat the most common disorders for each topic.

The content of the course is based on a review of the core content of emergency medicine as developed by the American Board of Emergency Medicine in conjunction with input from front-line, senior emergency physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. It has been identified that educational programs in emergency care for advanced practice providers and primary care physicians are not routinely available. Thus, specific gaps exist between current knowledge and competence and what is desired for practitioners caring for patients with emergent or urgent medical conditions.
