Cadaver Based Procedures Lab

Jointly provided by the University of Maryland Department of Emergency Medicine

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 | 1:00pm - 5:00pm ET

The Cadaver Based Procedures Lab course is intended to educate and train emergency medicine and critical care physicians in some of the most critical invasive procedures. Although these procedures are lifesaving, many physicians perform them infrequently due to their rare and invasive nature.

Participants in this course will be able to build on and maintain their clinical skills. With a 2:1 participant to human cadaver ratio, all will have ample opportunity to practice difficult procedures in a controlled, realistic setting.
