Orientation Month

We dedicate the entire first month of the PGY-1 year to ensuring our new residents have key emergency medicine skills and knowledge and to allowing the new classmates to become acquainted. The schedule includes an Introduction to Ultrasound course, twelve hours of cadaver lab for procedure training, and lectures based on the American Board of Emergency Medicine core content. The interns certify in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Advanced Trauma Life Support, and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. Of course, the month is also full of organized and spontaneous social events.
