EMS Medicine Live Webinars
EMS Medicine Live is a monthly webinar series providing educational content for EMS Fellows and both community and academic EMS Physicians.
Webinar course directors are Dr. Christian Knutsen and Dr. Derek Cooney from SUNY Upstate and Dr. Brian Clemency from the University of Buffalo. Our goal is to offer both interesting topics and EMS board prep reviews. To that end, however, we want to involve the entire EMS community.
EMS physicians from across the country have unique experiences with EMS systems. Medical oversight, system design, legal issues, HAZMAT, tactical medicine, field procedures, aeromedicine, mobile integrated healthcare design, controlled substance regulation and diversion, and unique and interesting cases are all areas where we have knowledge to share, roadblocks we have found, and solutions we have put into place. If your fellow or you would like to present a topic or case, please contact Dr. Knutsen at email@example.com.
Our webinars are hosted at 1 PM Eastern Time on Zoom. If you go to Zoom.us, you can create a free account and watch our webinars on your PC or phone. A link to our webinar is sent out ahead of time to all EMS fellowship directors and the ACEP EMS listserv. If you would like to be added to our distribution list, please email Christian Knutsen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
