Integrated Residency in Emergency Medicine

Edward Fieg, D.O., Director

Summary Block Didactics

Regular didactic conferences are held for four hours every Friday afternoon. After the first six weeks of each academic year July through June, 42 weeks remain in each year after four weeks are lost to holidays. This structure allows for a rotating three-year curriculum covering a variety of topics from different approaches.

The first hour of each Friday conference leads off with a faculty lecture from the Concentrated Topics in Emergency Medicine (TEM) list. The second hour consists of a 50-minute lecture from the Model of the Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine. This is conducted by a resident precepted by a core faculty member and a 10-minute supplemental discussion by that same faculty member. The third hour is another faculty lecture from one of the Interest Series in Emergency Medicine (SEM). The fourth hour is set aside for faculty and resident case presentations, or from December through February of each year a review course for the annual American Board of Emergency Medicine's written in-service examination administered in the last week of February each academic year.
