The first annual Southwestern Ontario Regional Base Hospital Program Research Day took place on June 19, 2018. This was the first time this event had taken place and several of our residents presented their research in prehospital medicine.
Summer School is underway! Our regularly scheduled core teaching is on an annual hiatus and we will be doing other hands-on activities all summer in its place.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Karen Woolfrey on the completion of her Masters of Education in Education Leadership from Yorkville University. Her thesis is entitled: Promoting Academic Scholarship for Clinician Educators: The Road to Promotion and Tenure.
Congratulations to everyone who presented at our annual Resident Research Day. Once a year, we come together to hear all about the exciting things happening in the WestERn research community. This year was no different!
Many thanks to Dr. Waseem ElHalabi for hosting us in his lovely home for our monthly journal club!
We discussed the REVERT trial and the Canadian Syncope Risk Score. Many thanks to all who showed up and engaged in a spirited discussion with some good food! Our next journal club is May 9, 2018, hosted by our very own Dr. Petrease Patton (PGY-1). Our theme will be Health Policy with an EM Focus.
We would like to send out a big congratulations to the newest four Royal College Residents, coming to an ER near you in July 2018 - Taylor Bechamp, Sydney Todorovich, Erfun Hatam and Robert Soegtrop!
Once again we had an incredible group of applicants and are very proud of our recruits. Looking forward to working with you all for the next five years.
Welcome to the family! :)
At our Chief's Rounds this week our fearless leader Dr. Mike Beyea, joined by one of our staff Dr. Karl Theakston led us in a spirited discussion of some of the more notable research articles published in the past year. Residents from all training levels (R-1 through R-5) put together summary documents to provide us with the "bottom line" regarding the article they reviewed. The "Bottom Lines" for this year and previous years can be found at the following link for anyone looking to brush up on the recent (and often controversial) Emerg literature.
Many thanks to all that came out to our journal club Feb 7, 2018 to discuss two articles outlining some very different applications of steroids for our patients. Special thank you to Dr. Wanda Millard for hosting us in her beautiful home and to our special guest Dr. Dara Kass for being in attendance.
It's that time of year again already! Western Emergency Medicine was excited to welcome CARMs candidates from across the country to London for our interview day. We were thrilled to meet so many future stars of Emergency Medicine. Good luck to all candidates as the match approaches!
