As you start an emergency medicine training program, it can be overwhelming deciding where to start with your coursework.

Here we'll outline our recommendations for both how to approach topic selection, as well as course timing, based on our experience working with the largest healthcare systems in the country over the past twenty years.

We have found allotting six to ten courses for completion each year is a reasonable range.

If you know specific areas in which your organization struggles, we certainly recommend starting there.

  • Does your organization struggle with improving patient satisfaction scores?
  • Do your clinicians struggle to communicate and empathize without admitting fault after an adverse event?
  • Have you had any violations or near misses with HIPAA or EMTALA?
  • Have you recently experience a near miss related to a specific clinical presentation?

You can always contact our Customer Success team with your areas of concerns and we can help you select courses to address those areas of risk.

If this approach doesn’t suit your organization, you might start with the framework below. Of course, you can modify this depending on the particular clinical or risk issues that may plague your group.

This framework is designed to address the most common diagnostic issues we see in emergency medicine.
