The mission of Emergency Medicine Core Training (EMCT) is to improve the practice of emergency medicine by strengthening the transition process for providers that are new to this specialty and enhancing the confidence in those currently providing care for emergency patients across the country.
EMCT is not meant to replace board-certification or a formal EM residency, but it is a must-have learning tool for non-EM trained physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. The program’s fourteen modules cover the fundamentals of the entire breadth of emergency medicine, including not only the common conditions but the can’t-miss diagnoses as well. New and veteran practitioners alike will find this program to be highly valuable as it prepares them to confidently care for patients in the fast-paced field of emergency medicine – and students can earn 156 hours of ACEP and AMA approved PRA Category 1 CME accredited by the ACCME.
The course material for this program was written by physicians and advanced practice providers from across the United States with decades of practical emergency medical training and experience. Until now, there has not been a comprehensive program available that covers the broad spectrum of emergency medicine quite like the EMCT program.
The editors and creators of the EMCT program, Stephen Jameson, MD, FACEP and Alex Beuning, MD, ABFM, BCEM, were inspired to create the program after working alongside many NPs and PAs new to the emergency medical field who felt they needed a stronger bridge from their traditional coursework. They have created a multimedia user experience which caters to all learning styles, and can function as both a training tool and an ongoing resource for practitioners. Any practitioner who completes this program will benefit from increased expertise leading to enhanced patient care as well as greater confidence in providing that emergency patient care.
