About

The Original EM Boot Camp course now offers an optional half-day Emergency Procedures course for EM Boot Camp registrants. Come a day early and get an immersive educational experience with seasoned physician instructors.

Produced by the well-established Hospital Procedures Consultants educational company, the course is unique in that the didactic portion of the program is covered in a series of online lectures that are available on any internet-enabled device. These modules review all of the specifics of how to perform a wide spectrum of procedures and include step-by-step instructions and actual videos of the procedures being performed from start-to-finish.

The lectures and videos are intended to be viewed prior to the live course so that you can hit the ground running at the live course and focus your time on actually performing the procedures under the careful supervision and instruction of expert physicians.

And, you’ll be able to receive CME credit for completing the online procedures course (up to 11.5 hours) and also for participating in the live procedures course (4.5 hours). In addition, the online lectures and videos will be accessible for 12 months so you can brush up by watching the procedure on your smartphone before you actually perform the procedure in the ED.
