Clinical scenarios will be presented as a foundation to teach the indications for the procedures. 

However, the emphasis will be on practical sessions using animal models and simulation equipment with expert instruction.

At Verdigris Medical Education we understand the requirement for continuing medical education and  appreciate that our  candidates will come from a wide background and many with years of experience.  

It is our policy to provide a faculty made up of only the most senior instructors (emergency medicine consultants, senior nursing staff and senior paramedics) who continue to treat critically ill patients on a daily basis.  

Not only  can we  ensure that our teaching is up to date and of the highest quality, we can pass on clinical pearls only acquired from continually treating real patients!
