Review current Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) guidelines and participate in intensive realistic scenarios in a simulated code blue environment. Participants are given adequate time for questions and answers with the instructor.

Scenarios include (but are not limited to): synchronized cardioversion, pulseless ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, PEA, asystole, symptomatic bradycardia and respiratory distress/failure.

Didactic Grand Rounds

This evidence-based, teamwork approach utilizes expert collaboration between senior physicians and newly graduated physicians to ensure that the most recent practice information and skills are being utilized. This opportunity builds teamwork and ensures the sharing of medical care knowledge between experienced providers and recent graduates (Specific topic objectives are identified from evidence-based data for each session.)

Spine Boards

These monthly seminars were developed to help establish coordinated, unified, multi-specialty practices and promote patient-centered, protocol-driven, literature-based care while incorporating standard outcome measures.

Participants will discuss how to improve the quality of spinal care in the region while providing educational and practical guidelines to a broad audience. (Specific topics are identified from evidence-based data for each session.).
