Didactics in Emergency Medicine

didactics lecture


Learning outside of the Emergency Department has become increasingly important during this pandemic. Weekly didactics have moved to a mixed schedule of weekly video-conference with an occasional, in-person, socially-distanced simulation curriculum. We utilize a variety of adult learner-focused teaching methods including the flipped classroom model, small group sessions, case-based learning, simulation, and engaging in asynchronous learning with the online learning platforms EM Coach and ALIEMU. Once a month, residents participate in educational programming with our State-Wide Campus System (SCS), a Michigan State conglomeration bringing many Michigan EM residencies together for evidence-based medicine education featuring renowned EM speakers from all over the United States. ROSH Review is provided to every resident, and weekly ROSH Review EM board style questions are assigned. Furthermore, residents participate in monthly journal club sessions, hospital-wide Morbidity and Mortality conferences and research seminars. HFWH EM residents get an extensive, well rounded education to optimize ITE in-service exams scores and are equipped with a diverse skill set aimed to not only pass the ABEM Emergency Medicine Boards upon graduation but become an independent and confident physician.

Simulation Lab

didactics practice

Our curriculum includes utilization of attending and resident-run quarterly procedural simulation workshops where residents are able to utilize the latest, technologically advanced, training and procedural equipment at The Center for Simulation, Education and Research at Henry Ford Hospital (Level 1 Comprehensive Education Institute and the largest and most advanced Simulation Center in Michigan). At Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital, we utilize the Trauma Sim Man (an interactive, life-like mannequin) for team training for trauma codes and medical resuscitation scenarios. Simulation Labs are a resident favorite, as they allow hands-on experience in EM focused, life-saving procedures. Our simulation centers give our residents the ability to refine their clinical skills using state-of-the-art simulations in a risk-free environment.


All residents will be BLS, ACLS, PALS and ATLS certified prior to graduation from residency. Residents also get the opportunity to be certified in BDLS through Wayne County HEMS. These opportunities are all provided through HFWH medical education at no cost to the resident.
