Continuing Medical Education Programs

The UCSF Department of Emergency Medicine sponsors several Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses each year, including:

High Risk Emergency Medicine San Francisco, offered every spring in San Francisco, is designed to meet the needs of the practitioner who may encounter a high risk condition in their daily medical practice. This includes practicing emergency physicians and advanced practice providers as well as those who practice internal medicine, hospitalist medicine, or family practice in an urgent care or emergency department setting.

High Risk Emergency Medicine Hawaii, offered every winter in Hawaii, is designed to meet the needs of the practitioner who may encounter a high risk condition in their daily medical practice. This includes practicing emergency physicians and advanced practice providers as well as those who practice internal medicine, hospitalist medicine, or family practice in an urgent care or emergency department setting.

High Sierra Wilderness and Travel Medicine Conference, offered every spring at Bass Lake - gateway to Yosemite National Park, is designed to meet the needs of those who may encounter life-threatening situations with limited resources. This includes not only emergency physicians, nurses and PAs, but also internists, family practitioners, backcountry rangers, EMS providers, members of the search and rescue community, and outdoor enthusiasts. Through both lecture and hands-on skills workshops, we will explore topics including survival and field treatment of environmental illness, rescue techniques, wound care, and fracture management. 

Building a Career in Global Health & Emergency Medicine is being offered for the first time in March 2017 on our Mission Bay campus. This conference is designed for early career physicians and fellows who are interested in building a career that encompasses both emergency medicine and global health. The day-and-a-half agenda is designed to provide participants with both the knowledge and skills to successfully navigate both domestic issues such as funding and negotiating a job, as well as international issues such as building partnerships and using ultrasound in resource-limited settings. Participants will also have ample time to meet and get to know others working in similar settings, opening up the possibilities for mutual learning and collaborations.
