Adult EM Bootcamp

They say nothing can truly prepare you for practice in the ED. We disagree.

Finally, an online video onboarding course that addresses the “real-world” clinical issues you will face but won’t find in textbooks. Flatten the learning curve and get ahead of the game, no matter what point you’re starting from in your EM career.

Learn how the ED really works beyond the textbook

Whether you’re starting out or switching specialties, we cover all of your “well, that wasn’t on the test” questions: What are the steps to clinically clear the cervical spine in a trauma patient? When do you order tests in an acute COPD exacerbation? What are those subtle T-wave changes on an ECG that I need to pay attention to? By the end of this course, you’ll be able to answer all of these, plus hundreds more.

Master in just hours what it may take you years to pick up on the job.

We’ve distilled down the time-earned, nitty-gritty lessons that are typically only gleaned through countless cases and years of experience in the ED. Go ahead, save time and learn from our mistakes (so you don’t have to make them yourself).

Don’t just learn how to act like a seasoned clinician; learn how to think like one, too.

Sure, you’ll learn all the juicy clinical tricks of the trade, but more importantly, we also train you to think on your feet in the ED. With streamlined clinical algorithms and mental frameworks designed by EM physicians, PAs and NPs, we’ll help you identify those “can’t-miss” diagnoses and manage each chief complaint like a pro.

Enjoy education that’s a cut above the rest: anytime, anywhere.

Unlike other onboarding courses that are pre-recorded live in a giant lecture hall or pieced together from multiple sources, this course curriculum has been carefully curated and recorded specifically for on-the-go use on your smart device. Maximize your information retention with the highest-quality, most entertaining experience available, on-demand.

What people are saying about Adult EM Bootcamp

    Matthew Valentine, PA-C, Emergency Medicine PA

    I loved how the presenters not only incorporated the "by the book" information but also wave in real-life pearls...It was very helpful to go above and beyond what we are thought in school/traditionally and know what to look for in a real patient. I'd highly recommend Adult EM Bootcamp to anyone (new and experienced provider alike)!
