EMIG Procedure Manual



The residency is required to make a statement about each resident's competency in certain procedures. 

  • Please remember to document all procedures, including simulation and cadaver labs in New Innovations  
  • You are required to submit, at minimum, documentation that you have completed the ACGME targets before you graduate.  
  • We have provided yearly targets to help you stay on track. 
  • In addition, you are required to achieve a number satisfactory evaluations of some procedures, to be kept in your portfolio.  The number of required "satisfactory" evaluations are listed on the table below.  
  • Remember: most patients that are transfered to the MICU/PICU/TICU have been resuscitated.

Online Texts must be accessed via the Intranet!!
