EMRA + CDEM Patient Presentations Video

SAEM’s Clerkship Directors in Emergency Medicine (CDEM) and EMRA released a training video for medical students that demonstrates how to tell a compelling story when presenting a patient’s case. This brief video offers handy do’s and don’ts that will help medical students understand how best to efficiently and effectively communicate in the ED.

The ten-minute video features EMRA resident and student members and CDEM leaders: Aditi Mitra, Michael Yip, Zach Jarou, David Gordon with help from Cathey Wise (EMRA) and Melissa McMillan (SAEM), with yours truly playing Mr. Ferguson.

The video was designed to illustrate the principles outlined in “The 3-minute emergency medicine medical student presentation: a variation on a theme” by Davenport, Honigman, and Druck (Acad Emerg Med, 2008).

“Oral presentations are a critical element in the communication of medical knowledge between students and faculty, but in most locations, the amount of time spent on teaching the oral presentation is minimal. Furthermore, the standard oral presentation does not work well within the emergency medicine (EM) setting, due to time constraints and the different principles that make EM a unique specialty.”
