The specialty of Emergency Medicine (EM) requires that providers are as competent in rare procedures as they are in common ones. This creates a challenge for EM educators, who are charged with graduating competent physicians who have the mental and technical expertise to perform such a breadth of procedures. To facilitate this instruction, we have created a weekly procedure curriculum that utilizes videos coupled with hands on instruction to teach 52 EM procedures. We have found this curriculum to be very effective and easy to implement into our residency training schedule.
