Emergency Medicine Boot Camp

Now You Can Attend the Original EM Boot Camp Workshops Without Registering for the Main Course!

Advanced EM Pharmacology Workshops

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

About the Workshops

Given the pace of emergency medicine, a strong working knowledge of EM drugs is essential. Which drugs are recommended? What are the best routes? What are the side effects? The intensive 8-hour Advanced EM Pharmacology Workshop (two 4-hour sessions) is designed to give you an in-depth review of almost all of the drugs that are used in the ED on a day-to-day basis.

The workshops have been approved for 8 hour(s) of pharmacology by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
