There’s always something new to learn when it comes to emergency medicine. That’s why the Department of Emergency Medicine partners with the Office of Continuing Medical Education to provide learning opportunities for physicians and allied health care professionals.   

Each year, the department hosts two large continuing medical education (CME) events. The Emergency Medicine Hot Topics Update typically takes place in the summer or fall at a Hawaiian location. The Emergency Medicine Winter Conference usually takes place during the first quarter of the year in Lake Tahoe.

Importance of Lifelong Learning

Health care delivery is changing rapidly, and emergency care is no exception. Continuing medical education events provide practitioners with state-of-the-art tools to improve treatment options for patients. Content focuses on evidence-based recommendations that directly impact clinical practice.

Faculty who teach at these courses are selected for their comprehensive clinical experience, academic excellence and teaching abilities. For each conference, UC Davis Health faculty members are joined by expert faculty from other academic institutions who are leaders in their field. A variety of educational formats are employed, including traditional lectures, case presentations and interactive roundtable discussions.
