ORL Emergencies Boot Camp

Georgetown hosts an annual ORL Emergencies Boot Camp each July under the leadership of Sonya Malekzadeh, MD. Now in its 11th year, we welcome over 50 residents from Mid-Atlantic region to this one day course, designed to onboard junior residents with knowledge and skills to successfully manage bleeding and airway emergencies.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s event was replaced with a 2-hour fast-paced Virtual ORL Boot Camp: It’s 3am, do you really want to call your attending? https://orlbootcamp2020.wixsite.com/oto3am
