Delivery Method:


EKG interpretation is a high-risk/high-reward clinical activity. Get it wrong and patient outcomes could be disastrous, exposing you and your urgent care center to liability and hefty damages claims. Get it right and you protect your patients, avert disaster, avoid liability, and save lives. Never mind that you aspire to improve your EKG interpretation skills and accuracy to become a better clinician -- the expectation is that you’ll get it right every time.

That’s why EB Medicine is bringing you The Urgent Care EKG Course, an in-depth training program focused on EKG interpretation essentials and best practices. This expert-guided self-study course picks up where your academic program and previous training likely left off. The Urgent Care EKG Course gives you practical, hands-on, time-tested techniques for enhancing clinical skills, improving accuracy of EKG interpretation, and, in so doing, boosting clinician confidence.

The Urgent Care EKG Course is divided into 10 engaging video modules, conveniently accessible online. UC clinicians will relate to every spoken and written word in every frame, from the moment your instructor introduces herself as your peer to the closing credits. Each module is clearly organized, narrowly focused on what matters in practice and on shift, and full of real-life scenarios and actual EKGs.

Features and Benefits:

Supplements basic academic training

  • This course is organized as an in-depth curriculum, building on the basics by covering “next-level” principles and practices needed to succeed in UC.
  • Video modules allow learners to pace themselves and replay as needed to retain knowledge through repetition.

Sharpens EKG interpretation skills and proficiency

  • The content emphasizes evidence-based education with practical application.
  • The course is designed to be an engaging, enjoyable training experience full of “sticky” content.
  • Learners receive resources they can keep and use as needed and methodology/techniques they can hone with practice over time.
  • Case presentations expose learners to a wide range of possible presentations and causes, from innocuous to life threatening, low-risk to high-risk.
  • A multitude of samples gives learners the opportunity to apply the 10-step approach presented and to practice marking up and interpreting EKGs.

Boosts clinical confidence

  • Understanding coronary anatomy, contiguous leads/reciprocal changes, normal/abnormal EKGs, wave rules, and the importance of intervals empowers learners to improve on-the-job performance.
  • It likely would take years of practice for a clinician to encounter the full range of presentations/causes covered in this course. But you never know when that “zebra” will walk into your clinic, so it’s ideal to be ready before they do.
  • This course employs the “practice makes perfect” principle with expert-guided interpretations of straightforward and complex/challenging EKGs representing real-life practice.
