THE WEEKEND HOSPITALIST AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES COURSE

The weekend course builds on the information in the lectures to solidify the cognitive aspect of bedside procedures and will continue to hone your procedural technique.  Weekend students are put through multiple case scenarios on Sunday to solidify their procedural knowledge in fluid analysis, complication diagnosis and management, and the nuances of hospital procedures in the clinical context (e.g., how to choose an induction agent for intubation, how to choose a procedural sedation regimen, review of the difficult airway management algorithm, how to manage an inadvertent central arterial line placement, how to use point-of-care ultrasound to assess the etiology of shock, and review multiple abnormal ultrasound cases, etc.).  The procedural skills labs in the weekend course are the same on both Saturday and Sunday except for the addition of cricothyroidotomy.  Weekend students are also run through simulated proctoring for each procedure on Sunday with procedure checklists to prepare you for the proctoring process you will need to undergo at your respective hospital.  Our goal is to have all students fully independent in all procedures!

The live weekend course is certified for up to 20 hours AMA PRA Category 1 creditTM, but please note we limit the number of weekend students to twenty students per course.
