Serious CME | Top Destinations | Prime Times

You’ll experience an engaging, no-fluff, fast-paced, update of the literature surrounding key emergency medicine topics by an experienced, energetic faculty of emergency medicine educators.

Now Using Both EM:RAP’s Emergency Medical Abstracts and CorePendium

The Emergency Medicine & Acute Care Course is now collaborating with EM:RAP and will be using as its sources EM:RAP’s Emergency Medical Abstracts and the newly released (October, 2019) CorePendium.

Since 1977, Emergency Medical Abstracts has been searching hundreds of journals and providing audio summaries of the most important papers in emergency medicine.

CorePendium is a new internet-based comprehensive multimedia text specifically focusing on emergency medicine that is literature-based and updated every three months with the latest information from the medical literature.

All registrants who are not EM:RAP subscribers will receive complimentary access to EM:RAP for three months in association with their course registration to allow access to the CorePendium source documents.
