Our Educational Resources
Our faculty are on the cutting edge of medical education. Below are two examples of
how they are teaching residents in innovative ways.
Behind the Scenes of the Emergency Department
“Having a real patient involved – not just a simulation or a PowerPoint presentation – is so much more powerful from an educational perspective.” - Larry Mellick, M.D.
Dr. Larry Mellick, professor and vice chair of emergency medicine, created an educational YouTube channel that goes behind the scenes of USA Health's emergency departments. The videos serve as an additional resource to teach medical students and residents about scenarios they might encounter in emergency medicine. Learn more about Dr. Mellick's YouTube channel on the Med School Watercooler blog.
