FOAMed – Based on the famous Foundations of Emergency Medicine Curriculum, residents are given a directed review plan with text book, podcast, and guide options to study at home. Learners can choose which sources are best for them and when they want to study. Then topics are reinforced through oral-board style cases done in small groups each conference. We begin prepping you for your board cases from day 1 in conference so you will have no trouble after residency!
Learning Resources – Our residents have access to EM:Rap, Hippo Education, PeerIX, Rosh Review, Tintinalli’s e-book, National Emergency Medicine Board review course, Carol River’s Oral Board Review course and more!!!
Protected Conference Time – Faculty will cover the ED to ensure you will be able to attend conference. Residents do not like missing our conferences! Not only do they get smarter, we feed you delicious food and it is a time to connect with your co-residents and faculty.
Research & Scholarly Activity – As part of a larger network of hospitals, those with a research interest will have ample opportunities to thrive. In addition to traditional research interests, our department has numerous quality improvement projects as we are always striving to improve care. Research requirements in our program match resident’s career goals and scholarly activity can include a variety of experiences. We will help you thrive.
Teaching – Residents will have the opportunity teach medical students as they rotate through the department. In the final year of residency, residents have the opportunity to learn more formal teaching methods as part of our medical education elective.
High Volume, High Acuity – With over 109,000 visits to the ED every year, residents will be treating high acuity patients as part of an interdisciplinary team where resident education is paramount.
Procedures – Interns are first line for procedures in our department because we have NO COMPETING LEARNERS at UCF North Florida. We own every procedure in our department. Our interns have performed more intubations, central lines, and chest tubes than some graduating residents!
