Didactic Curriculum 

 

Our didactic curriculum is centered on a problem-based, small group discussion format that engages the adult learner in critical thinking and the application of medical knowledge into a real world clinical setting.  Residents are assigned readings from both a standardized emergency medicine textbook as well as a current review article on a curriculum topic.  Faculty members engage residents in a thorough review of the day's topic as well as a discussion of the application of treatment modalities in a clinical setting.  These discussions are supplemented with hands on simulations to reinforce the key concepts and to hone clinical and procedural skills.  In addition, we offer a written and oral board review, a monthly journal club, radiology review, toxicology lecture series, and an administrative and practice management lecture series.

Simulation activities include multiple patient management, trauma and critical care scenarios, and EMS field exercises and procedural competencies such as airway management, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, ultrasound, and osteopathic manipulative medicine.  In addition, residents participate in the following standardized courses:

  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support

  • Pediatric Advanced Life Support
  • Advanced Trauma Life Support

 

OGME III
