This blog and podcasts are a result of the war games medical training program at UVa. This began in 2003 and eventually included 168 different clinical cases of varying complexity.
We presented over 1500 cases to over 600 residents and students. The reviews of the program were overwhelmingly positive, but it was more and more difficult to get people to take an hour of their day to attend sessions.
Hence, the podcasts.
This site will include podcasts dealing with:
Acute care emergencies
Critical care emergencies
Multiple casualty simulations
Expert commentary (not always by me)
We will also provide PDFs describing the background for the podcasts, and extensive descriptions of how to set up small group sessions to go over clinical cases and learn how to be better clinicians.
