2017 Weinstein EMS Lecture Series

Through the generosity of the Johnston & Weinstein families, a fund has been established at the Central New York Community Foundation in the memory of Gail Weinstein, Upstate Emergency Medicine’s former paramedic program director to promote Emergency Medical Services education. Through this generous act, Upstate Emergency Medicine has developed the Weinstein EMS Lecture Series. An annual lecture series focused on providing our Central New York first responders with a learning opportunity focused on patient-centered medicine, responder safety, and quality of care.

This workshop is intended to build upon your foundational knowledge base of 12 lead EKG’s. Learn to recognize common pitfalls that interfere with your interpretation while refining a systematic approach to EKG interpretation and assessment of the complex medical case. This lecture will promote critical thinking and build confidence in your ability to rapidly interpret 12 lead EKG’s.
