Academic Wilderness Medicine: Fundamentals and Implementation of Curriculums into Medical School and Residency

Globalization has increased the ease of remote travel, the popularity of backcountry sports, the incidence of natural disasters due to climate change, and the need for humanitarian response to those disasters — leading to rising incidences of improvised medical care, which is the hallmark of wilderness medicine. Emergency physicians are uniquely equipped to provide this improvised medical care; consequently, wilderness medicine has become a robust academic subspecialty of emergency medicine. Participants in this workshop will be instructed on the fundamentals of wilderness medicine so they can effectively teach the subspecialty as well as provide care outside of an emergency department.

Clerkship Director Boot Camp

There are many elements that go into running an emergency medicine clerkship — from training residents and faculty, to providing feedback, to advising students on away rotations and applications. Clerkship directors must also answer to many masters: the medical school, the department, students as learners, and students as advisees. As part of their role, clerkship directors are also responsible for accreditation standards, especially during visits from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). This workshop will discuss several of the factors that go into running a successful clerkship and how to navigate some of the pitfalls.

Low-cost Simulation Models: Caviar Tastes on a Tuna Fish Budget

By combining high-yield, targeted didactics with extensive hands-on training, participants will learn novel cost-saving techniques and principles resulting in the ability to create several low-cost, high-fidelity models to enhance their home institution’s simulation training and their own professional development. This workshop will consist of six unique interactive stations that will run simultaneously over the duration of the workshop. Each station instructor will guide participants on model creation using specific techniques. In addition, one group lecture will be given by each of the instructors, to highlight their specific models and techniques. Participants can choose to learn on all six lectures/stations or spend more time at a single station. This format will allow participants the flexibility to maximize their time and participation with as many instructors as possible to focus on specific skill acquisition and model creation. This session is designed to benefit learners at all levels, from novice to expert, and is meant to be paired with the Procedural Training Session.

Medical Education Research Boot Camp: Improve Your Educational Research

Education scholarship is essential for the promotion of faculty and for investigating and disseminating new educational practices. With very little faculty development devoted to research, educators often fall behind on scholarship. It is key for them to be able to identify well designed study questions, situated within appropriate conceptual frameworks, and to develop outcomes that strike a balance between feasibility, meaning, and importance.

Physician Advocacy Boot Camp: Beyond the Emergency Department

With access to all regardless of time of day or ability to pay, the emergency department is a key component of the social safety net. As a result, emergency physicians are at the forefront of rising health epidemics — from the increasing rate of opioid overdoses to caring for victims of interpersonal violence — and are uniquely positioned to not only advocate for individual patients, but also for policies that improve the health and well-being of patients and the broader medical community. Despite this unique role, few emergency physicians receive formalized training in how to approach advocacy. Using interactive didactics and examples of current policy issues, this session will provide participants with concrete skills they can use for advocacy, including leveraging social media, writing op-eds, talking to the media, writing expert testimony, working with government and public health officials, and participating in local politics. The session is designed to educate providers at all levels and varying degrees of engagement, from trainees to experienced clinicians. At the completion of this session, participants will leave with tangible skills they can use for patient advocacy.

Simulation Workshop: Critical Strategies in Simulation Procedural Skills Training for High-risk/Low Frequency Procedures

Effectively training learners to perform procedures can be challenging. Complicated training models, learners of different levels, and lack of engagement can add to the difficulty. Training students, residents, and peers using simulation takes not only years of practice, but also an evidence-based approach. This workshop will take an innovative approach to train educators to effectively teach procedures using simulation task trainers. The session will review some of the best practices in training for procedures (what is worth doing, what is not), what types of trainers might be worth making or purchasing, as well as pearls and pitfalls. Presenters will then take participants to the simulated bedside to practice and train on these specific procedures. Experts in simulation-based education and research will instruct the session, focusing on specific and measurable ways to teach learners, and offering their own experiences around each procedure. After an initial interactive presentation reviewing best practices in simulation procedural training, learners will have the opportunity to choose the breakout sessions that appeal most to their needs. Each procedural station will review teaching of that specific procedure, but will focus on a specific element of simulation-based procedural education. This session is perfect for the non-simulation expert interested in sharing his or her procedural skills with learners in the most effective and efficient way possible. Faculty, fellows, and residents are welcome.

Symbiosis: Mentors and Mentees Creating a Mutually Beneficial Relationship

Mentoring is considered a fundamental element of a career in academics and has been linked to better job satisfaction and greater productivity. Mentoring relationships offer much in terms of personal and professional development for mentors as well as for mentees. Those that have a framework for the mentoring process and strategies for facilitating a mentoring conversation are more likely to be effective and enjoy their role. However, while faculty at all stages of their careers will both have a mentor and be a mentee, the relationship is fraught with potential pitfalls, and there is no standard practice for establishing symbiotic mentoring relationships. This workshop will focus on strategies for building and optimizing the mentor-mentee relationship and on providing mentees with the tools they need to be proactive, take ownership, and drive the relationship. There will also be a dedicated segment on how to reach  younger, tech-savvy colleagues.
