Even in less traumatic cases, facial trauma can be no less life-changing. In this course, learners will discover how to manage the challenging complications unique to facial trauma. The student will also review the types, causes, and treatment of facial injuries. Our face is our primary psychosocial interface with others.

*Pediatric Toxic Ingestion (ALS) With the increased prevalence of at-home treatment of a variety of complex medical conditions, patient’s homes are increasingly a location where a multitude of prescription and over-the-counter medications can be found. While this has allowed for reductions in hospitalization for many common conditions, it has increased the exposure of all patients, particularly pediatrics, to potentially dangerous toxicological emergencies. This course introduces the concepts of pediatric toxicology and focuses, in particular, on accidental overdose on prescription medications. 1h
