The hospitalist and Emergency Procedures Course is organized by Hospital Procedures Consultants (HPC) and will be held from Apr 29 - 30, 2023 at Swissotel Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, United States of America.
All students will gain online access to our 19 didactic modules that include all of the lectures and procedural videos for our Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures course. These modules should all be completed prior to your scheduled hands-on skills lab session. As such, you will be able to complete all of the didactic preparation for our course anywhere and anytime and you will be able to review all of the lectures and full-length procedural videos as many times as you would like for a whole year!
After completion of the didactic modules, you will join us for a full weekend of simulation-based training in ALL of these hospital procedures.
