Sixth Annual Emergency Medicine
Interest Group Symposium

Saturday, January 26, 2019

Rain Date: February 2, 2019

The Opioid Crisis - A Healthcare Emergency

Medical students are invited to attend the 6th Annual Northeast Emergency Medicine Interest Group Symposium on January 26th at the Zucker School of Medicine at Northwell/Hofstra. This year we will be examining the ongoing opioid crisis, including both its social implications and the medical and biological approach to opioid addiction. Alongside introducing participants to the science and medicine behind opioid addiction, we will also use small group sessions for practical application of essential clinical skills. These sessions will include cardiac focused ultrasound station, Wilderness Medicine, and an Overdose Prevention, Recognition, Response and Naloxone Rescuetraining station. In addition, we are fortunate to have a guest speaker give their own first-hand account of their experience with opioid addiction and recovery. This symposium will also facilitate a deeper understanding of an Emergency Medicine residency through a residency director panel.

We are excited to announce our two keynote speakers, Dr. Mark Su and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor. Dr. Mark Su is the former director of the New York City Poison Control Center and currently holds the position of clinical associate professor of emergency medicine at NYU. He has numerous publications on assessing and treating exposures to a wide variety of drugs and toxins. Dr. Sandeep Kapoor is the director of SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment) at Northwell Health and assistant professor of medicine and emergency medicine at the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell. He is currently leading the charge to implement a unified substance misuse screening and intervention program to address the ongoing opioid epidemic. More information regarding each keynote speaker is below.

After our keynote sessions students will have the opportunity to interact with a panel of residency program directors from a variety of three and four year programs, representing hospitals with varied patient demographics and residency programs accepting both Allopathic and Osteopathic applicants.
