CORD Connects


A new platform created by CORD Board Members to bring you an educator series of 18 sessions in 18 months!

In this series you will hear from, and discuss, important educational topics with some of the best educators in the EM community. Better yet, you can do this in an interactive online forum from your office or home. This is an opportunity for faculty and residents interested in education to develop knowledge and education skillsets with medical education leaders nationwide. Plus, these sessions are recorded for you to review at a later date so you have information at your fingertips. Sessions will be added regularly.


Join us the fourth Thursday of every month for CORD Connects sessions with Program Directors, EM leaders, career physicians, and others.
Space is limited! Every month, an email invitation will be sent a week ahead of the Hangout. Questions? email

Upcoming Connections:

Moshe Weizberg, MD   Jessica Smith, MD

Session 5: Residents: Developing a Niche in Academic EM
As residents, we often find ourselves in "survival mode," expending a great deal of energy and time to simply complete our basic requirements to become board-certified emergency physicians. This makes thinking about long term career goals and plans especially challenging. However, being intentional about finding your passion and long-term career planning can significantly improve your overall wellness and fulfillment.

Session 4: The Voice of Experience: Leadership Lessons
I will describe my leadership history, the decisions points in my life, and where I made correct and incorrect choices. What has helped me be successful and how I have learned to manage and motivate others. I will focus on the pearls from my own experience in academic emergency medicine rather than a review of the copious literature on leadership. I will also add my thoughts on managing a work life and a home life.

Session 2: Residency Branding
Why do some coffee drinkers pay $4 for a cup of coffee when there are just as tasty options available for 99 cents? The answer is simple: branding. In this webinar, Jeremy Branzetti and Mike Gisondi will build off their previous presentations at the CORD Academic Assembly and ACGME Annual Educational Assembly to discuss the principles, process, and importance of residency brand development.
