38th Annual Mammoth Mountain Emergency Medicine Conference

ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE

Emergency Departments provide the “front line” of health care in this country and serve an extraordinary public safety function. However, health care delivery in the country changes rapidly, and emergency care is no exception. As a result of course participant evaluations and other annual assessment surveys, the need for cutting edge information about emergency medicine has been identified. To this end, the Mammoth Mountain Emergency Medicine Conference has educated frontline providers on the latest updates in emergency medical care for over 30 years.

The 2019 Mammoth Emergency Medicine Conference is a four-day program designed to provide healthcare professionals in emergency medicine with a state-of-the-art, comprehensive update on a broad range of emergency medicine topics. This conference will allow all providers (physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and paramedics) to receive the most up-to-date information on emerging and evolving diagnostic and treatment strategies.

  • There will be an emphasis on how to incorporate these into quality patient care. Lecture material is pragmatic, concentrating on practical problems of emergency assessment and therapy through verbal and visual case illustrations.
  • Audience participation and faculty/audience discussion are highly encouraged. Presentations, lectures, case studies, team-based learning in small groups, and hands-on skills stations will be used.
  • A summary lecture at the end of the conference will review the highlights of each previously taught topic.

Learners benefit from a nimble schedule, allowing for maximum time on the mountain during the day while providing timely, relevant continuing education.

This program is designed for emergency medicine physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, paramedics, and EMTs. All healthcare professionals involved in the urgent and emergent care of patients will benefit from this conference.
