Emergency Medicine Boot Camp

All-New! Advanced EM Pharmacology Workshops

Join us for two 4-hour workshops that dive into the core drugs that relate to emergency practice.

Space is limited. Register early while spots are open!

About

As a faculty member of Vanderbilt University’s Emergency Nurse Practitioner program, Michael Gooch, DNP, has specialized for over 10 years in the instruction of clinicians in the pharmacotherapeutics of drugs related to emergency care. Join him as he presents a comprehensive, state-of-the-art program designed to provide a detailed working knowledge of the vast majority of drugs that are applicable to emergency practice.

The Advanced EM Pharmacology Workshops are presented in two parts – Part 1: Morning Session (8:00am-12:15pm) and Part 2: Afternoon Session (1:45pm-6:00pm). Register for Part 1: Morning Session, Part 2: Afternoon Session or bundle both and save $35 off your tuition. If you’re flying in for the Original Boot Camp course most flights can get into Las Vegas by 1:00pm so you can take Part 2: Afternoon Session and not miss a day at home or work. The pharmacology workshops will be videoed and both sessions will be subsequently available as a self-study program.
