For ALL Medical Staff Physicians – 1 hour
EMTALA for On-Call Physicians reviews the basic knowledge essential for every practicing physician with hospital privileges – and then turns its focus to ON-CALL RESPONSIBILITIES. We emphasize the common pitfalls for the hospital on-call medical staff physician and use real-world examples.
This EMTALA training class is presented by Robert Bitterman, MD, JD, FACEP, a healthcare attorney who has authored many articles on the subject as well as the comprehensive EMTALA textbook published by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).
This course provides the training necessary to navigate the evolving regulatory minefield that is EMTALA.
