Illinois College of Emergency Physicians

EM4LIFE Emergency Medicine LLSA Article Review and CME Program* is available for years 2009 through 2011. EM4LIFE was developed for emergency physicians preparing for the LLSA component of the Continuous Certification process developed by ABEM. EM4LIFE delivers a comprehensive, carefully-detailed review of each of the yearly articles on ABEM’s LLSA reading list. EM4LIFE is set up in an easy-to-read outline format and provides complete, concise coverage of all the essential article content. In addition to each article review, EM4LIFE offers Pearls that emphasize and summarize key points from each article. All of the questions in EM4LIFE have article-referenced and text-referenced answers. This powerful program is presented by the Illinois College of Emergency Physicians and noted author Deborah E. Weber, MD, FACEP.  

EM4Life Review Courses are 8-hour courses that will summarize the pearls of each of the LLSA articles for the given year. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to identify the key points of each reading.
