EM Foundations: 11/30/17

Welcome to the next installment of our 18 month longitudinal integration of the EM Foundations curriculum! EM Foundations uses a flipped classroom model that includes a guided independent review of EM core content to capable adult learners followed by in-person meeting time that is reserved for active, case-based, small group learning and focused critical teaching points. EM Foundations consists of two levels of case-based curricula and two levels of EKG courses that we will incorporate. If you have not done so already, please review the Guidelines for Learners which reviews all the details of how the curriculum works. Check out the residency calendar to see when EM Foundations are scheduled! Below is the assigned material with your choice of learning pathways for your independent review prior to our session scheduled for 11/30/17 at 8:30AM.
