Division of Emergency Medicine
Continuing Professional Development
The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Office seeks to promote the ongoing academic development of faculty members in three key areas.
1. Continuing Medical Education
- The 10-Minute Emergency Medicine Conference is a highly successful regional conference that occurs each fall. This intra-professional conference links physicians, nurses and paramedics together in addressing cutting edge evidence as it relates to emergency medicine.
- The Best Evidence in Emergency Medicine (BEEM) Group is an international group of educators and researchers, who search the medical literature for EM-relevant evidence, filter out only clinically significant evidence and critically appraise the findings. BEEM presents these findings regionally, nationally and internationally helping to bridge the knowledge gap from bench to bedside.
2. Faculty Development
Supplementing the Program for Faculty Development Office, the CPD Office provides regular faculty development workshops tailored to the unique educational requirements of academic emergency physicians. Based on formal needs assessments, these workshops facilitate excellence in education, research and scholarship.
3. Knowledge Translation
The CPD Office is actively involved in a collaborative research agenda that seeks to address the gap in translating clinical research into clinical practice.
