We are excited to announce the creation of a new PA/NP Residency Program at Yale-New Haven Hospital!

This 18-month program for graduates of accredited PA and FNP programs includes clinical rotations in our adult and pediatric emergency departments as well as didactics, simulation sessions, and off-service clinical rotations to enhance your knowledge base.

For additional information, please follow this link, check out our brochure, contact the program at 203-688-2352, or e-mail a member of the faculty:

ARDSNet was a practice-changing publication that has since been extended to ventilator management of patient who do not have ALI or ARDS, so use 6-8 mL/kg of predicted body weight when using volume AC.


There may be a link between depth of sedation in the first 48 hours after intubation and time to extubation and mortality, but if you cannot determine how depth of sedation is defined, nor what link there might be between RASS score and medications given, you cannot act upon the findings in the publication.


Go to the Yale Box for a full summary of last week’s journal club, and articles, on the management of ventilated, critically ill patients.

Emergency Medicine Lectures at Yale will be in Harkness Auditorium on Wednesday, December 17th beginning @ 9:00am.


Breakfast will be served.

The next Global Health Night will be December 16th, where we will be discussing topics in emergency medicine in austere settings.

WHEN: Tuesday, December 16th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm
WHERE: 360 State St., Screening Room on the 6th Floor
WHAT TO EXPECT: We will discuss two articles:
Yale Global Health Box
1) Cardiovascular Risk Assessment in Low-Resource Settings
2) Burn Care in Disaster and Other Austere Settings


This discussion will be followed by an open forum during which we can talk about working abroad and how you can get involved in Global Health during residency.


We are very fortunate to have to two great guest physicians joining us: Dr. Doruk Ozgediz is an Assistant Professor in Pediatric Surgery with extensive experience working in Uganda and other low resource settings, and Dr. Jeremy Schwartz is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Yale and has done a lot of work on non-communicable disease in low- and middle-income countries.


WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU: We’re looking for two residents who are willing to dig into these articles and lead the discussion. Tanja Zanin will help with this.


Also, please RSVP to Tanja ASAP if you are interested so we are able to get head count in order to know how much food to bring.


UPDATE! Emergency Medicine Lectures at Yale will start in the TAC building in rooms N205, 207, 209 on Wednesday, December 10th beginning @ 9:00am. At 11:30am, conference will move to 464 Congress Avenue.
