This grand rounds is designed to disseminate advancing practice of EMS so that physicians can be better prepared to work within an EMS System. ABEM defines EMS as a subspecialty; grand rounds will allow maintenance of certification. EMS is also a subspecialty of any American Board of Medical Specialties graduate. This allows any physician to get continuing education that applies to any of these specialties.
We are the only core group of academic faculty in Southeastern Wisconsin that is positioned to deliver this type of continuing education in this region. The Institute of Medicine outlines the need for better trained physicians in the EMS roles. Many communities do not have the privilege of having board certified EMS physicians so this continuing education helps to fill that gap.
Allied Health Care Professionals
The EMS Grand Rounds learner will receive content specific education related to the science of EMS medicine and translate that content into best practice with the goal of improving EMS care in the communities served. Learner performance will be judged through successful written or practical testing.
