In the Department of Emergency Medicine we have a dynamic and interactive curriculum that utilizes blended learning techniques where didactic and simulation education are combined with amazing experiential learning to allow our residents to grow into the best emergency physicians they can be.

Don Byars, MD and Anya Cipi, MD talk about the Emergency Medicine program's history and mission.

During their first month, our Emergency Medicine interns complete a boot camp series in addition to Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, and Advanced Trauma Life Support.  Boot camp sessions are highly interactive small group simulated based sessions such as our Emergency Ultrasound Course, Advanced Airway Day, Shock Day, Central Line & Chest Tube Course, and Minor Procedure Lab.
