The Teaching Course is a medical education, social media, and digital media extravaganza that will quite simply blow your mind! Just wait until you see what we have planned for 2016....Check back for updates on this site and keep up with the course progress by following @EM_Educator.
The course is open to all health care professionals (physicians, nurses, physician assistants, paramedics, etc) looking to make a difference in medical education. The overall aim of the course is to give attendees the tools necessary to change the world of medical education. If you are looking for a course filled with hour long Power Point presentations with lots of bullet points, you have come to the wrong place. In fact we have a strict "no bullet point" policy.
You are in for a treat, because the faculty for the teaching course are enthusiastic, energetic, and well-known educators in emergency medicine and critical care medicine. They are all dynamic teachers who truly care about the course and the experience attendees have. Scroll down to the About section to see the amazing lineup. The 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 courses were a great success, and we have lots of new and exciting stuff to add to the 2016 course.
