Abstract

A self-instructional program in emergency medicine has been developed for freshmen medical students at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. The cognitive objective of the course is to give the student the minimum level of knowledge to diagnose emergency medical conditions. Performance of the appropriate practical treatment is the course's psychomotor objective. Evaluation of the student's grasp of the program's cognitive and psychomotor objectives is accomplished by the written and practical examination for certification of emergency medical technicians and practical tests in basic life-support. Self-instructional guides, algorithms, videotapes and reading materials are the educational resources for the course. As a result of successful completion of the training program, the student is certified as an emergency medical technician in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
