Multidisciplinary Emergency Critical Care Program


We provide an evidence based and practical critical care education to emergency medicine trainees and nurses. We use innovative and multidisciplinary approaches to maximize the quality of teaching and to continue to improve the curriculum by incorporating the voices of the trainees.

Our educational collaboration is not only with other passionate educators among EM physicians, intensivists, and subspecialists, but also with other healthcare professionals, such as palliative care providers, FLEX nurses, advanced practice providers, respiratory therapists, and pharmacists. As a team, we will push the boundaries of knowledge in the field of emergency critical care in order to provide the best care for our critically ill patients in our emergency department.
