Utilization of computed tomography scans (CTs) has increased dramatically in emergency departments in the USA. This study aimed to retrospectively determine the yield of CTs among all patients that received a CT of the head from 2001 to 2007, which is adjusted for patient volume. For secondary endpoints, we examined the yield of CT of the head for the(More)
We sought to determine if CT utilization rates varied by characteristics of the physician. A chart review was performed at an urban academic emergency department (ED) to identify all the CT scans ordered and patients seen for subjects 21 years of age and older by physicians between January 2001 and December 2008. "Years of experience" was defined as years(More)
PURPOSE Education leaders at the 2012 Academic Emergency Medicine Consensus Conference on education research proposed that dedicated postgraduate education scholarship fellowships (ESFs) might provide an effective model for developing future faculty as scholars. A formal needs assessment was performed to understand the training gap and inform the(More)
The epidemiology of pediatric fever has changed considerably during the past 2 decades with the development of vaccines against the most common bacterial pathogens causing bacteremia and meningitis. The decreasing incidence of these 2 conditions among vaccinated children has led to an emphasis on urinary tract infection as a remaining source of potentially(More)
Medical educators with broad expertise across the domains of learning theory, teaching, program design, assessment, and education scholarship are essential to medical schools and graduate medical education programs. Currently, no standard postgraduate training model (like those available for each medical specialty) exists for residency graduates to attain(More)
The convenience of a computed tomography (CT) scanner in the emergency department (ED) may impact utilization rates. Our primary aim was to determine the rate of utilization before and after the placement of an ED CT scanner. Secondary aims were to determine the rate of utilization by anatomic region and during a 5-month period when the ED scanner was(More)
INTRODUCTION Recent literature calls for initiatives to improve the quality of education studies and support faculty in approaching educational problems in a scholarly manner. Understanding the emergency medicine (EM) educator workforce is a crucial precursor to developing policies to support educators and promote education scholarship in EM. This study(More)
