Brief review on teaching project

Author(s): Borayek Saad*

Residents are physicians who achieve their learning program “in house”(i.e., the hospital)”. In the emergency department, doctors are always eager to learn and to share in the great work of emergency specialists when they receive, diagnose and properly treat shocked patients. The main types of shock include: “Distributive, hypovolemic, cardiogenic and obstructive”. Patients present to the emergency department in a life threatening condition, however, by correct diagnosis and treatment they become better and start to survive. This very critical situation, in addition to being stressful and demanding, has a fruitful result that encourages and attracts junior residents to learn and practice new knowledge. Using recent methods of teaching such as flipped classroom, in addition to practical training, is very promising to qualify junior emergency residents in their new job. This project is the first step of a complete curriculum to junior residents in the emergency department that will qualify them according to the most recent guidelines. Junior doctors usually rush in the emergency department due to lack of experience. In addition, our hospital receives many accidents each hour, other than emergent cases of cardiac cause or other medical causes. By teaching juniors the basic knowledge and skills of managing shock, they will be able to save lives and feel satisfied and self-evaluated by their new job.
