Learn life-saving emergency medicine procedures first-hand at the SEMPA Procedures Course where you’ll engage in procedural education through hands-on training on high-fidelity trainers. There will also be a procedural anatomy demonstration by instructors on human cadavers. Participants will have access to the demonstration cadavers.
Join us October 7-8 for the 2019 SEMPA Procedure Course at the University of Florida-Jacksonville, College of Medicine Center for Simulation Education and Safety Research in sunny Jacksonville, Florida.
The 2019 course will be directed by Steven A. Godwin, MD, FACEP, Petra Duran-Gehring, MD, and Fred Wu, MHS, PA-C.
Our goal is to provide an intensive hands-on experience with critical, high yield procedures commonly encountered by physician assistants working in the field of emergency medicine. This course will fulfill some of the procedural requirements for the NCCPA Emergency Medicine CAQ and Emergency NP certification.
