Module Content

MyEMCert includes eight presentation-based modules grouped by content, each consisting of up to 50 questions. Approximately 80% of the questions will be related to the specific module topic, and 20% related to key advances in the specialty. Key advances will not necessarily share the same topic as the module.

The topics will focus on clinical scenarios based on patient presentation.

Teaching Points 

Two modules currently offer teaching points that focus areas of study and preparation. Download and review these prior to taking these modules.

>> Download Head and Neck Teaching Points

>> Download Nontraumatic Musculoskeletal Teaching Points

The teaching point does not contain specific information that would lead you to the diagnosis or correct answer but would instead direct you to learning and reference materials. 

Examples of teaching points: 
• differential diagnosis for the limping child
• diagnostic approach to childhood limping
• treatment of major and common causes of childhood limping

Teaching points are for the core question sections of these modules and not for the Key Advances section. Refer to Key Advance Synopses to download and prepare for the Key Advance section.

Presentation Scenarios 

As an open-book assessment, study requirements should be minimal, but if you do not feel ready, you may wish to study the topic and review the resources provided before beginning a module.

A description of possible patient presentations, along with an outline of the types of clinical scenarios that could appear is provided for each of the eight modules. The description also includes examples of specific conditions that could be addressed based on the potential presentation scenarios.

✔ Abdominopelvic 
✔ Abnormal Vital Signs and Shock 
✔ Trauma and Bleeding 
✔ Thoracorespiratory 
✔ Neurology 
✔ Social and Behavioral Health

Each module will also have content based on key advances in Emergency Medicine clinical practice. Key advances will not necessarily share the same topic as the module.
