Campus Announcements


Suture Session, Teaching Opportunity

The Emergency Medicine Interest Group is hosting their annual Suture Workshop on Tuesday, September 27, from 5p-8p at the VEC (Simulation Center).

We are looking for resident physicians to work with our students in small groups as they practice suturing. 
Can you message the residency to see if anyone is available and free to participate?
We look forward to the residents bringing their expertise and wisdom to the students.  
I spoke to Oz, Trudi, Di, and Christie and any residents who participate will get credit for the Med ED APT.
Please let Marissa or I know if you are able to come participate for part of the time or the entire time so we can get a headcount.

Cornell Innovation Conference 

 In case you are unfamiliar, Future of Care at Weill Cornell hosts a free conference each year where we invite speakers and leaders in the medical and biotech industry to come lead workshops, network, and give talks to medical students, residents, and other young innovators in the greater NY area in an effort to further cultivate an environment of innovation and biotech in NYC. 
The event has been a huge success in the past before COVID, and this year, we are bringing it back in-person at Cornell Tech (Saturday, October 29th, at the Verizon Executive Education Center at Cornell Tech on Roosevelt Island).


Research Survey

I’m Jacqueline, MS4 doing research with Dr. Kaushal Shah. We are working on a project assessing the need/desire for further training in reading head CTs among EM residents, and we are asking you to fill out this super quick yes/no survey. It will just take a minute of your time, we would really appreciate it if you could help us out!

If you’ve filled out this survey before, thank you for participating and please disregard!

*While we cannot offer any compensation for this study, we hope that information learned from the study will benefit you and other trainees.

Heart Transplant Workflow

  • New WC Heart Transplant Program set to go live this fall

  • Advanced Heart Failure/Transplant team wants to know about all heart transplant patients that present to the ED regardless of their complaint or when/where their transplant occurred

  • Place “Inpatient Consult to Cardiology (Advanced HF/Pulm HTN)” order when these patients present to the ED

    • If patient in shock use consult order “Inpatient Consult to Cardiology (ECMO)” instead

  • A member of advanced HF team or CCU fellow (overnight) will evaluate patient in the ED

  • Admit these patients to 4N (under Advanced Heart Failure PA team) or CCU depending on their necessary level of care
