Continuing Medical Education Programs

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

High Risk Emergency Medicine

High Risk Emergency Medicine, offered once a year in the Spring/Early Summer, 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 hospitalist medicine, primary care (internal medicine, family practice, or pediatrics) or practice in a rural or urgent care setting. Courses have been offered in San Francisco, Sonoma Wine Country, and Hawaii.

Wilderness Medicine Conference

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 virtual lectures and breakout room 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

As a WHO Collaborating Centre for Emergency, Critical and Operative Care, UCSF is a leader in global health education and partnership. This conference is designed for healthcare providers interested in building a career in global health or integrating this into their existing practice. The two-day agenda will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to successfully navigate both domestic topics such as project funding and job negotiation, and international topics such as partnership building and program development. Participants will have time for networking with others with similar interests and experience in various healthcare environments, creating opportunities for ongoing learning and collaboration.
