We have hosted the Duke OHNS Emergency Skills Course since 2014. This course is designed to address basic OHNS emergency calls.
The course is held in early July and is geared toward PGY 1 & 2 residents, teaching skills such as cric/trach procedures, flexible scope/bronchs, PET tube placement and suturing of more complex defects.
In addition we have a session on communication, managing complex scenarios and management of common middle/of-the-night phone calls.
OHNS residents from multiple states participate in addition to Duke Emergency Medicine Residents. This multidisciplinary interaction provides for a richer experience.
Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided. Faculty from all the different programs and disciplines volunteer their time for this day-long event.
There is no registration fee, but residents and faculty participants must register.
