EMCT Training Modules Available for Individual Purchase

EMCT delivers a completely self-paced emergency medical training program

The Emergency Core Training Program (EMCT) provides a self-paced, comprehensive foundation in Emergency Medicine.

The program helps prepare non-EM trained physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners for working in Emergency Departments. The individual training modules are a mix of video, slide show presentations, text, challenge questions, and final assessments.

There are 14 modules within the full EMCT program, but you can purchase these modules individually to meet your personal educational needs.

Available EMCT Modules:

1. EMCT Overview

In this module you will discover your role as a new emergency physician, PA, or NP, and the roles of those helping you. Learn the overall approach to patient care, the importance of triage, evidenced work-ups, patient satisfaction indicators, and where and when to get support. Even veteran EM physicians, PA’s, and NP’s can learn more about how to improve their patient encounters.

2. Cardiovascular Emergencies

Is there a more important system to know inside and out than Cardiovascular? This module reviews many common and high-risk patient encounters that the emergency physician and APP need to know, including chest pain, palpitations, syncope, dyspnea, and more. Learn the evidence-based approach to managing these presentations. If needed, there is a review of relevant anatomy and physiology at the start of this module followed by an extensive review of a host of pathophysiologic conditions and their treatments. A solid foundational knowledge in CV is imperative to the practice of EM.

3. Respiratory Emergencies

Air exchange with the environment is the A & B of the ABC’s of resuscitation, and the Respiratory module guides you through all of the emergent processes that disrupt this system. Seconds can count when managing respiratory failure and the emergency physician and APP needs to have knowledge of these disorders like no other, as there is often no time to look up what to do and there can be delays with a call for help. Learn the evidence based approach to managing a host of respiratory disorders by reviewing actual encounters of patients in varying degrees of respiratory distress. Learn to interpret chest imaging, ABG’s, and other ancillary studies as you work-up patients with cough, shortness of breath, hypoxia, and pleuritic chest pain.

4. Renal, Genitourinary, and Acid/Base

The basic metabolic panel is one of the most commonly ordered tests in emergency medicine, yet many veteran EM physicians and APP’s do not fully understand all that this test offers and what all of the values mean: e.g. why do we call the “Total CO2” a “bicarb level?” This module starts with a review of basic science along with A&P (for those that need this review), then transitions to the pathophysiology and treatment of a host of genitorenal conditions and acid/base disorders. This module concludes with an evidence-based approach to the management of chief complaints of flank pain, testicular pain, hematuria, and urinary retention, and a host of challenging acid/base clinical scenarios.

5. Endocrine, Hematologic, and Oncologic Emergencies

Some of the sickest patients you will see in emergency medicine are those in this module. Understanding diabetes and ketosis is a must for properly managing DKA. Acutely treating the neutropenic patient is a must to curb the risk of sepsis. Hematologic disorders are important as well and are poorly understood by many emergency physicians, PA’s, and NP’s. Further, hospitals may have limited pharmaceuticals to treat certain factor disorders, so understanding the real and potential risks in this patient population is necessary, in order to talk intelligently to the family that is commonly very learned about their, or their child’s, condition. Even experienced EM providers commonly have significant knowledge gaps that can be filled by completing this module.

6. Neurologic and Psychiatric Emergencies

This module covers the evidence-based approach to one of our most difficult patient populations. Patients with non-specific complaints of dizziness, weakness, and/or numbness require diligent history taking and examination skills. Differentiating stroke, peripheral nerve disorders, and psychosomatic disorders can be very challenging, and radiologic imaging does not always give you the answer and is of limited utility. Understanding the cause of and managing the acutely agitated or tremulous patient is also challenging. Bedside videos of a multitude of patient encounters will help immensely as you work to gain a better understanding of how to diagnose and treat a multitude of neurologic and psychiatric conditions.

7. Gastrointestinal Emergencies

Abdominal pain is one of the most common chief complaints in emergency medicine, and the fact that a final diagnosis is commonly elusive makes this a high-risk problem for both the patient and the provider. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hematemesis, and bloody stools are other common chief complaints and they too can be a harbinger for serious and even life-threatening conditions. Hone your clinical acumen by stratifying the risk of all of these encounters. Learn the evidence-base approach of who to image, who to order lab studies on, who needs a surgical consult, and who goes home and who gets admitted.

8. Obstetric and Gynecologic Emergencies

Women, young and old, have a unique set of emergencies that require a special focus. This module begins with a review of anatomy and physiology relevant to the management of acutely ill, injured, and pregnant women, then goes into detail on the pathophysiology of a host of emergent Ob/Gyn conditions and their treatments. Helpful algorithms and clinical pearls are shared as you work through the work-up, diagnosis, and management of a broad range of chief complaints and clinical scenarios related to women’s health.

9. Orthopedic and Rheumatologic Emergencies

Major, and even minor, traumatic injuries are commonly associated with orthopedic injuries. This module covers bones and joints from the neck to the toes. We start by providing an overview of general anatomy and physiology, and normal fracture healing, then review all of the joints of the body and their connecting bones in a systematic and comprehensive manner so as to prepare you for diagnosing and managing these common and important conditions and injuries in the ED. This module also includes how to work-up and manage a multitude of common acute rheumatologic emergencies. Learn how to perform arthrocentesis in various joints, how to reduce dislocations and fractures, and when to consult the orthopedist immediately.

10. Pediatric Emergencies

Pediatrics could clearly be its own series of modules, since it encompasses such a broad range of conditions, but many pediatric conditions are covered in other modules, such as trauma in the “Trauma and Critical Care” module, making this module much more manageable. There are many unique clinical circumstances to consider with children, even pediatric patients at various ages, so a thorough understanding of these ‘not just little adults” is essential. Parents entrust you with their most precious treasure and you need to be prepared to earn that trust by being knowledgeable in all aspects of their care, or at least know when and how to seek support. Numerous bedside videos of actual patient encounters will help you hone your clinical acumen so you can begin to differentiate “sick” from “not sick.”

14. Trauma & Critical Care

Managing Critically ill and acutely traumatized patients is what Emergency Medicine is all about. Though this is a small percentage of our patient encounters, it is arguably the most important subset. You need to be well trained in order to be prepared to manage this challenging patient population, and you need to know your role as leader of the patient care team. This module starts by reviewing the members of trauma team, the equipment and resources available, and how to assess the limitations of your facility. You will then go through an extensive series of actual trauma and critical care scenarios, in both adult and pediatric patients, and learn many critical procedures along the way.
