Emergency Medicine Residency Program Didactics

The didactic portion for the emergency medicine program is very vast and inclusive. The residents meet every Thursday morning at the Sagamore Hills Education Center. These conferences are held from 7am to 12 noon. The entire didactic curriculum is developed early in the academic year using the Rosen's Emergency Medicine textbook. Each Thursday, there are four topics assigned to residents and teaching faculty. Four times per year the residents have a Trauma conference in conjunction with the General Surgery residents at South Pointe Hospital.            


The residents also take part twice a year in a practical ACLS skills lab at Northeastern Ohio University College of Medicine (NEOUCOM). The skills lab at South Pointe Hospital take place four time per year. The residents are assigned to small groups and each program consists of a SimMan simulation case, OMM and ultrasound skills.


The didactics also include a monthly journal club, board review and mock oral board reviews.
