About Clinical Practice and Cases in Emergency Medicine

Clinical Practice and Cases in Emergency Medicine (CPC-EM) is a distinct affiliated journal of the MEDLINE-indexed, Western Journal of Emergency Medicine (WestJEM), offering patient care case reports and images (still and video). A special focus is on bedside, point-of-care ultrasound videos. It is fully open-access, peer-reviewed, and freely available worldwide. CPC-EM encourages case reports and image submissions from junior authors (students, residents and fellows), as well as faculty of established and developing international Emergency Medicine (EM) programs. Most papers have both a junior and senior author, fostering our mentorship goal. As evidenced by some 400 submissions/year, there is a clear demand for publication and dissemination of this important clinical content.
