The goals of this curriculum are to expose Emergency Medicine residents to the basics of leadership, to provide a graduated series of interactive, psychologically safe environments to explore individual leadership styles, to review interesting relevant literature, and to discuss leadership principles and experiences with senior leaders in our Emergency Department.
The aim of this curriculum is to develop relevant skills to promote academic success for fellows and first-year faculty at the start of their academic career and which could be completed during a one-year training timeline. We included topics relevant to all fellow and new faculty’s expected personal and professional journey during this first year, including time management, academic productivity, resilience/wellness, and developing a national reputation.
By the end of these training activities, prehospital EMS learners will be able to demonstrate foundational ultrasound skills in scanning, interpretation, and artifact recognition by identifying pertinent organs and anatomically relevant structures for an E-FAST examination. Learners will differentiate between normal and pathologic E-FAST ultrasound images by identifying the presence of free fluid and lung sliding. Learners will also explain the clinical significance and application of detecting free fluid during an E-FAST scan.
After this lecture, learners should be able to: 1) elaborate on the significance of a CV for medical students and discuss its purpose, 2) outline the elements that should and should not be included on a CV, 3) integrate knowledge gleaned from basic principles with provided examples to establish the foundation of their own CV.
At the end of this oral board session, examinees will: (1) demonstrate ability to evaluate a patient with undifferentiated shock with bradycardia and discuss the differential diagnosis, (2) recognize the signs and symptoms of calcium channel blocker overdose, (3) demonstrate ability to manage treatment of a patient with calcium channel overdose.
At the conclusion of the simulation, learners will be able to: 1) demonstrate ability to efficiently review patient records to optimize patient care and identify relevant details to current presentation, 2) rapidly assess a patient when there is a change in clinical status, 3) recognize the need to start resuscitative fluids for undifferentiated hypotension, 4) identify anaphylaxis, 5) demonstrate the medical management of anaphylaxis, 6) utilize the I-PASS framework to communicate with the inpatient team during the transition of care.
