Rural Emergency Medicine (REM) Course, Apr 19-21, 2017

December 20, 2016

Rural Emergency Medicine (REM) Course
April 19-21, 2017 at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE

The Rural Emergency Medicine Course is designed for physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practioners to review low-frequency, high-risk emergencies and practice lifesaving procedures in a realistic, controlled teaching environment.  Our highly relevant and informative core sessions are updated each year by board-certified emergency medicine physicians.  The 2017 event will include small group skills labs using patient simulators, lightly embalmed cadavers, and standardized patients.  Procedure-based learning will include basic intubation, rescue airway devices and surgical airways, splinting, intraosseous access, chest tubes, domestic violence recognition and treatment, mega-code simulations, and EKG interpretation.  The University of Nebraska Medical Center and Children’s Hospital & Medical Center of Omaha are co-providing this event with the goal to offer diverse learning opportunities related to both adult and pediatric emergencies.

Below is a link to the full website and contains a schedule of events.  We applied for accreditation and we hope to be fully accredited by the end of this week.  Enrollment fills quickly.  We suggest you sign-up at your earliest opportunity.
