Whether you are a student or a clinician...medicine can be overwhelming.

Medicine evolves so quickly and updates happen on a daily basis. 

Your goal is to not know it all right away. But rather, to be the best version of yourself.

The question you might have is, how?

The best long term strategy is to be consistent. Learn something new every single day.

This is why we started Medgeeks and learning medicine has never been easier.

Knowing you have to stay up to date is one thing, but actually doing it is something entirely different. Whether you are just starting off or have been practicing for years, we know we can help.

We want to take the guess work out of the equation, so you can focus on being the best clinician possible. One of the ways we do this, is with our live virtual conferences.

Twice a month we go live with our clinical mentors to get you up to speed on specific medical concepts, review case studies, and answer any questions you might have!

For the month of February we'll be doing something unique...

 

Two Day Live EM & Family Medicine Virtual Conference

 

We'll be going through 4 cases that start off in primary care. Our family practice mentors will then work up the patients with you, ask you questions, and share important relevant pearls.

The patients will then decompensate and we'll need to send them to the emergency department. 

Once in the department, our emergency medicine mentors will take over and teach you how to manage these patients. Once again, you'll be by our side as we work up and manage our decompensating patients.

Finally, two of the cases will require admission into the intensive care unit. This is where our ICU mentor will take over and show you behind the scenes of what it's like to care for critically ill patients.

The four patients will be discussing include:

  1. Case 1:
    - Shortness of breath with leg swelling.

  2. Case 2: 
    - Hematochezia and fatigue on Eliquis for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation

  3. Case3: 
    - Hypertensive urgency

  4. Case 4: 
    - Complicated UTI

 

We'll be planning to go live:

  • Sunday February 21st 7 am PST for the family practice portion of the presentation
  • Tuesday February 23rd 5 pm PST for the EM and ICU portion of the presentation
