Emergency Medicine requires specific skills and knowledge to treat conditions from minor lacerations to major trauma and stroke in a complex, dynamic environment. Modern educational approaches are needed to help a resident develop skills that impart excellence rather than solely competence. This combined with changes in healthcare delivery, reduction in work hours for residents, additional faculty responsibilities and new obligations imposed by the ACGME are posing significant challenges for Emergency Medicine Residency programs.

CoreCases for Emergency Medicine is an efficient, online case-based curriculum that uses the latest multi-media technologies and educational assessment techniques to help a resident develop problem-solving skills, self-reflection, and enhance the clinical decision-making skills needed to better operate in this fast-paced environment.

CoreCases for Emergency Medicine consists of a full curriculum of 36 online simulated patient encounters (including a resident wellness case on Burnout Syndrome), that covers more than 300 disease states and and can used to supplement educational activities in a specific rotation, to replace lectures, and to engage residents in interactive discussions. Cases can be assigned based on PGY level, topic area or complexity. All residents can learn critical information, make correct diagnoses, and prescribe the proper treatment. The curriculum includes familiar disease states and conditions as well as ones that are difficult for programs to cover. The program can be used by residents independently or in group-learning in flipped classrooms.

CoreCases for Emergency Medicine contains a full complement of rich multi-media, including videos, diagrams, clinical images and medical illustrations to engage and encourage participation from all residents. The program is evidenced-based, and supplemental articles and resources are incorporated into each case making further study easy and efficient.
