Patient Presentations in Emergency Medicine

Patient Presentations in Emergency Medicine

EMRA and CDEM launched "Patient Presentations in Emergency Medicine," a training video for medical students. Demonstrating how to tell a compelling story when presenting a patient's case, this brief video offers hand do's and don'ts on how to communicate efficiently and effectively in the ED. EMRA Education Committee members Michael Yip, MD, of Yale School of Medicine, and Aditi Mitra, MD, of William Beaumont - both of whom appear in the film - said the project grew from a simple discussion about how best to serve students.


A 2008 paper from Academic Emergency Medicine, "The 3-Minute Emergency Medicine Medical Student Presentation: A Variation on a Theme," stood out, Dr. Mitra said. But it didn't translate into practice as easily as a video might.
