Didactic videos for rotating residents the ED


Many academic Emergency Departments are staffed by non-EM residents. Dr. Amer Aldeen and his super-star team from Northwestern created NURRC Modules (Northwestern University Rotating Resident Curriculum). These modules allow the off-service residents, who all have different schedules, to learn key EM-based topics at their own leisure and convenience.

The positive effect of the curriculum on the off-service residents’ medical knowledge was recently published in Academic Emergency Medicine

NURRC Video Modules

  1. ENT and Ophthalmology Emergencies
  2. Environmental Emergencies
  3. Obstetrics and Gynecology Emergencies
  4. Orthopedic Emergencies
  5. Toxicology
  6. Trauma and Wound Care

Thanks to the team for agreeing to make these videos free for everyone to use.

I hope I wasn’t too pushy or forward in asking for the videos… and then asking if I could post then all on YouTube! Such a great resource shouldn’t live behind closed doors. I’ll post the other 3 videos once I receive them from Amer.
