TCEP Connect Update – Jan 2018
Share |

by Education Chair, Dr. Lynn Roppolo

Registration is now OPEN for TCEP CONNECT 2018 which will be in Houston, April 12-15 at the Hilton Americas Hotel. The meeting will be packed with high yield content and innovative learning opportunities for emergency providers at all levels. The DEADLINE for the “discounted” EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION, submissions for the NEW SPEAKERS FORUM and RESEARCH FORUM is January 31. The conference is fully planned but detailed entry of the schedule on the meeting website is still being finalized. We promise to provide you with the BEST TCEP CONNECT meeting ever!

Here are the highlights:

Day 1: Traditional golf tournament, New Speakers Forum, and a Welcome Reception

Day 2: Several high yield lectures on hot topics in EM including 2 hours of pecha kucha type talks based on 3 different themes: New Indications for Old Meds, Critical Care Update, and other High Risk Patients

Day 3: Will be divided into the Faculty, Resident and Medical Student Tracks. Faculty will have the opportunity to listen to several lectures in the morning on Health Policy Updates and Medicolegal Issues impacting EM. That afternoon, all registered faculty are invited to participate in any of the FIVE SKILLS LABS and LLSA Prep at no additional cost. These labs are 45 minute sessions that will repeat for a total of 4 sessions: 1) neonatal resuscitation with two NICU attendings, 2) difficult airway intubation where learners will be taught a simple algorithm and perform fiberoptic intubation through an intubation LMA, 3) transvenous pacing using the PacerMan System, 4) ultrasound guided femoral nerve blocks, and 5) difficult deliveries. SPACE IS LIMITED. Preference will be given to faculty who register for the full conference and the order in which individuals sign. If interested, please click on this link.

Day 3 will also include a new innovation in residency competitions called the Resident OL”EM”PICS. This is a great way for our Texas EM residents to enhance leadership skills, promote team building and master some business of EM concepts. We also have a spectacular curriculum for EM bound medical students.

Space is filling up quickly. Click on this link for hotel and Conference information.

Hope to see you all there. Please help us make this truly a TCEP “CONNECT” experience!
