Introducing: GroundED in EM a 4 week asynchronous curriculum for 3rd year students

By Guy Carmelli, MD July 04, 2020 0 comments

A group of educators from our ALiEM Faculty Incubator 2020 class has created a 4-week virtual introduction to Emergency Medicine curriculum for 3rd-year medical students called Grounded in EM!

Think back, back to March 2020: you were a medical student, happily rotating through core specialties, considering Emergency Medicine, and then WHAM! The coronavirus pandemic pulled the rug out of your regularly scheduled 3rd year. Or, you were a program looking forward to a “business as usual” approach to your 3rd-year EM clerkship. Now, you’ll have limited face to face time, and are wondering “How do we provide the same general em content?”

Are you still considering emergency medicine? Are you worried that your fragmented clinical experience is leaving you unprepared for your rotations in an Emergency Department near you? Are you a program looking for an answer to provide a great EM learning experience? This is the curriculum for you!

Target Audience: Third-year medical students who haven’t committed to Emergency Medicine, but are interested in being introduced to the field AND programs looking to have a comprehensive and ready-made EM related content for MS3’s rotating this academic year.

What: A 4-week completely asynchronous and virtual curriculum containing FOAM resources, including blog posts, podcasts, webpages, and interactive modules, based on the ACGME core competencies. Each module includes a short quiz to test immediate knowledge retention, and the end of the week choose your own adventure case.

Where: Hosted on ALiEM.com

When: Curriculum release on July 1st

Benefits: Walk into your EM rotations feeling confident that you will know how to approach the undifferentiated patient, make a differential, talk to people about it, and write it down, in a compassionate and patient-centered way! Programs can have their students do this curriculum in parallel with their clinical shifts during their 4-week rotation.

Over four weeks, we will cover:

  1. How to approach undifferentiated and acutely ill adult and pediatric patients (Patient Care and Clinical Reasoning)
  2. An introduction to the flow and system of the Emergency Department (System Based Practice)
  3. Communication strategies in Emergency Medicine, both with written and verbal and with EM physicians, consultants, and patients (Interpersonal and Communication Skills)
  4. Professionalism, medical ethics, and patient-centered issues that arise in the Emergency Department (Professionalism)
  5. Creating a differential diagnosis for both common and life-threatening patient presentations (Medical Knowledge)
  6. Exposure to key Emergency Medicine content areas such as resuscitation, evaluation, diagnostics interpretation, and management of common ED presentations (Medical Knowledge, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement)
  7. Development of procedural skills, including suturing, vascular access, as well as EM tricks of the trade. (Medical Knowledge, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement)

We can’t wait to have you join us on GroundED In EM!
