Excellent course, very useful to target key features and set up a study schedule. Helpful examples of oral exams are provided, with strategies to tackle them. Highly recommend!

This course provides an excellent structured study program. It provided insight into what to expect, how to prepare, and how to structure my answers and oral cases. As a result of this course, I significantly improved my knowledge and skills as an EM physician.

About Us

EM Review is based out of the Saint John Regional Hospital Emergency Department. The course began in 2010 as a local educational program with the goal to help local physicians prepare for and pass the CCFP (EM) certification exam.  As our colleagues successfully completed their exams, we expanded this project across Canada. Now, we are proud to help over 180 physicians each year to prepare for this exam!
