Prehospital Continuing Education

In partnership with UW Health, the Department of Emergency Medicine offers a variety of educational programming aimed at providers in the prehospital setting. Our expert faculty develop, teach, and oversee classroom training, advanced simulations using state-of-the-art technology, case reviews, and high-yield experiences for all levels of care providers.

Our goal is to ensure that local and regional emergency response teams are able to access and utilize the highest level of education and training so they are prepared to handle complex, real-world scenarios.
