Emergency Medicine Residency Director Workshop

Sunday, September 6, 2015, 8:30am-12:30pm

Course Description

The training program for emergency medicine varies internationally yet all instructors face similar challenges in providing this specialty education. In this workshop, we present common challenges faced by residency directors, with practical solutions and an open forum for group discussion. Topics will include: evaluation and feedback, communication skills, simulation training, and changing resident behavior. We encourage all educators to join us to discuss these important issues in EM resident education.
