Preliminary Dates and Location

Review a practical current approach to imaging of emergency and trauma patients, from radiologists from the University of Washington and Harborview Medical Center, the only Level I adult and pediatric trauma center in a four-state region (Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho).

Enjoy 8 hours of daylight following the course each day, providing ample opportunities  for sightseeing and enjoying the natural beauty of Seattle and the Puget Sound region. Summers in Seattle are sunny, with long days, some of our dryest and warmest months, and temperatures around 75 degrees.

This emergency radiology course is intended for practicing radiologists, physicians-in-training, and emergency medicine providers.
It is especially useful for radiologists practicing in trauma centers and emergency departments, and for those providing after hours emergency radiology coverage (eg: nighthawk type services). Although the course is primarily targeted at physicians, it may also be helpful for CT technologists and others involved in emergency imaging.

The 2015 program will be provided here when it is finalized, and is expected to follow a similar curriculum as in prior years, but modified based on the guest lecturers.  Prior programs are available for your review - 2014 program, 2013 program2012 program, 2011 program.   Please visit the UW CME Site for updates to the program, and to register for the course. Hotel information is available at Grand Hyatt Seattle.
