Program Description

The HPC Hospitalist, Trauma, and Emergency Procedures CME course is a two-part course that is comprised of two distinct components: an internet-based CME curriculum, as well as, a live CME course that is 100% hands-on procedural skills lab training. CLICK HERE for information about the Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures Online CME course that is provided for FREE to all live course registrants.

Each component of the course is certified separately. The internet-based CME course is certified for a maximum of 11.5 hours of education while the live CME course, which is part of our emergency medicine CME courses, is certified for a maximum of 20 hours of education. 

 Live Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME Course Description

The Live Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME Course is a simulation-based training activity that is continually updated, comprehensive and includes 4 hours of hands-on ultrasound education per day of instruction. These live CME training courses will be 100% hands-on procedural skills lab training. This course covers the 20 most essential procedures needed to work in the ER, ICU, and hospital wards, including the procedures needed for trauma management in the ER.

The Live CME Course is limited to 40 students (with students split into four groups of 10 learning in two conference rooms) to allow ample hands-on instruction and individualized education with the goal that every student develops the knowledge and skills necessary to begin performing these procedures at their respective institutions. The course is taught by six procedural expert instructors to improve the one-on-one hands-on experience for our students. The max student-to-faculty ratio is 6:1, but frequently this ratio is less.

During the day, students will learn about ultrasound-guided peripheral IV placement, landmark-guided and ultrasound-guided central line placement, arterial line placement, and point-of-care ultrasound training on paid models including the E-FAST exam, RUSH exam, limited echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, chest ultrasound, spine ultrasound, tube thoracostomy, pigtail catheter placement for pneumothorax evacuation, needle decompression, ultrasound-guided thoracentesis, lumbar puncture, ultrasound-guided paracentesis, basic airway management, endotracheal intubation, intermediate airway placement (LMA and King tube placement), stylet-guided intubations, video laryngoscopy, and basic suturing. One day of simulation-based training at an HPC live CME course has at least as much hands-on procedural training as most two-day procedures courses.

The second day of the live CME course will add training in cricothyroidotomy, fiberoptic intubation, ultrasound-guided pericardiocentesis, will provide simulated proctoring, and will cover case scenarios for all procedures focusing on complication prevention, detection and management.

What Is CME Training?

CME stands for “Continuing Medical Education.” CME training refers to educational activities and programs designed for healthcare professionals, particularly physicians and other healthcare practitioners, to help them stay up-to-date with the latest developments in their fields, enhance their knowledge and skills, and maintain their professional competence throughout their careers

What Are CME Credits?

CME credits, or Continuing Medical Education credits, are a standardized way to measure and document the participation of healthcare professionals in ongoing educational activities. These credits serve as a record of a healthcare provider’s commitment to staying current with advancements in their field and improving patient care. Healthcare professionals earn CME credits by participating in various educational programs, and the number of credits awarded typically reflects the duration and complexity of the activity. Many licensing boards and professional organizations require healthcare practitioners to earn a certain number of CME credits within specific timeframes as a condition for license renewal and board certification, ensuring that they maintain their professional competence throughout their careers.
