Clarity in Emergency Medicine

”If students are to learn desired outcomes in a reasonably effective manner, then the teacher’s fundamental task is to get students to engage in learning activities that are likely to result in their achieving those outcomes. . . . It is helpful to remember that what the student does is actually more important in determining what is learned than what the teacher does.” T.J. Shuell

Residents and specialists in Emergency Medicine working at the emergency departments of Lund, Malmö, Helsingborg, Kristianstad, Ystad and neighbouring Denmark participate in joint one-day long training sessions that are offered on a monthly basis in one of the regional clinical training centers.

  • The principles that underlie the structure of our training program are described under the heading Pedagogic Principles

  • A description of the 20 half-day training sessions that are repeated every 1.5 years and the associated pretests can be found under the heading Sessions & Pretests

  • Practical information regarding schema and scheduling can be found under the headings Session Structure and Scheduling

  • How the sessions correspond to the Swedish Specialist Examination in Emergency Medicine can be found under the heading Sessions vs Exam

  • Under the heading Scenarios, you can find templates to write your own scenarios based on the format used during our regional training sessions. This format is identical to the format used in the Swedish Specialist Examination in Emergency Medicine, the EMCC course, and the course Akutsjukvård för AT-läkare. Using the same format allows for the future possibility of sharing a common databank of scenarios. The European Society of Emergency Medicine’s education committee recommends basing scenarios on real cases [1].

  • Public Presentations

  • Videos, kontaktorsaker (in Swedish)
