Come join us for a unique and one of a kind conference experience!  Learn clinical application of patient assessment, lab medicine, EKG and radiology.  Also, we teach you how to stay out of trouble medical legally.

John Bielinski, Jr, MS, PAC is the speaker.

John is hailed as one of the greatest presenters in the country. With his unique active style and easy to follow
presentation, attendees have reported learning more in one day from him than an entire year in the classroom! He earned a master’s degree in family and emergency medicine and is a national lecturer on emergency medicine and extraordinary patient care. His experience not only includes years of hospitalist/intensive care coverage, but he has also run a rural emergency department for nine years autonomously, having cared for hundreds of cardiac arrest and critically ill patients.
John has lectured for over 10 years teaching PA students at two PA schools in Buffalo, NY, as well as instruction of paramedics/ nurses on advanced cardiac life support.

• Laboratory Medicine & Clinical Application
• Pulmonary Medicine & CXR Interpretation
• Chest Pain & EKG/ECG Interpretation
• Common Emergency Medicine Complaints

To learn more about him and his "active engagement" learning style, check out his podcast Talk EM or his YouTube channel.  John has been the keynote speaker at numerous state and national conference as well as in Canada and on National Geographic.
