Continuing Medical Education Programs

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

High-Risk Emergency Medicine Hawaii

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.

2021 Wilderness Medicine Conference

The 2021 Wilderness Medicine Conference was 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 and Emergency Medicine

Building a Career in Global Health & Emergency Medicine is offered annually at 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.
