We have hosted the Duke OHNS Emergency Skills Course since 2014. This course is designed to address basic OHNS emergency calls. 

Next event: Saturday, July 27, 2024

The course is held in July and is geared toward PGY 1 & 2 residents, teaching skills such as cric/trach procedures, flexible scope/bronchs, PET tube placement and suturing of more complex defects.  

In addition, we have sessions on communication, managing complex scenarios and handling of common, middle-of-the-night phone calls.

OHNS residents from multiple states participate in addition to Duke Emergency Medicine Residents. This multidisciplinary interaction provides for a richer experience.

Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided. Faculty from all the different programs and disciplines volunteer their time for this day-long event.

There is no registration fee, but residents and faculty participants must register.
