We enjoyed having Dr. Lauren Falvo (@Sim_Falvo) and Dr. Anna Bona (@annamb89), both Fellows of Simulation Medicine at Indiana University. They participated in our resident Simulation curriculum and led debriefing exercises as we continue to expand our burgeoning simulation experience at the beautiful new UK Healthcare Simulation Center.
Drs. Bona and Falvo also stayed to work with our larger group of residents, APPs and medical students to lead a session entitled “Blind Faith:An Exercise in Closed Loop Communication” at our Emergency Medicine Resident Conference. Thanks to both for their expertise and collaboration!
EM residents provide patient care on a 24/7 basis and are a significant and vital workforce. They provide long hours and personal sacrifice dedicated to education, study, quality patient care, patient advocacy, research, and leadership.
We are so thankful for this group of residents.
Happy Emergency Medicine Resident Appreciation Day!
