Teaching Opportunity for Medical Students
For those interested in teaching (or brushing up on your procedural skills), Cornell is running a Transition to Residency (TTR) bootcamp for graduating MS4s, and we are looking for junior and senior EM residents to help run a number of different workshops. These include:
Tuesday 4/5 from 1-3:30pm: Basic Resuscitation Workshop (focusing on CPR, Zoll use, and BVM)
Monday 4/11 from 1-3:30pm: Access Workshop (focusing on IVs, A-lines, and CVL)
Thursday 4/14 from 9-10:20am, and again 10:30-11:50am: Intubation workshop, PPV
Thursday 4/14 from 1-3:30pm: Access Workshop (focusing on IVs, A-lines, and CVL.
These are great opportunities to teach motivated med students, as well as good CV items for those interested in Med Ed or Sim. If interested, please email Chris Reisig (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks!
Please remember to email your morning report topic to faculty before your presentation!
Message from Dr. Josh Belfer, CHONY PEM Fellow:
The Doctors Are People Too podcast explores the intersection of medicine, sports, and pop culture. In each episode, Dr. Josh Belfer, a pediatric emergency medicine doctor, discusses the ways in which medicine plays a part in all aspects of society.
In our first several episodes, we have talked to:
Dr. Michael Harrison, an aerospace medicine physician. We talk all things space medicine – including practicing medicine on the space station, how astronauts use ultrasound in space, and how commercial space travel will change aerospace medicine.
Dr. Oren Gottfried, a neurosurgeon who serves as a medical advisor for television shows such as The Good Doctor and Chicago Med. In our “Medicine in Hollywood” episode, we discuss Dr. Gottfried’s roles as a medical advisor, the similarities between the writers’ room and the operating room, and Dr. Gottfried’s thoughts on shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scrubs.”
Dr. Natasha Sheybani, a PhD scientist from the University of Virginia who studied focused ultrasound technology for the treatment of cancer. Dr. Sheybani explains her unique path from working in a college laboratory at 14 years old to having her own lab and being named one of Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30.” She describes how ultrasound can be used to treat cancer, the promising future of this technology, and what mentorship means to her!
