Associates in Emergency Medical Education (AIEME) has been serving Tampa Bay as well as state, national and international medical communities for the past fifteen years. Known for our high quality, low stress courses, AIEME has become one of the largest providers of Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Basic Life Support (BLS) courses in the state. In addition, AIEME coordinates specialty courses such as the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), International Trauma Life Support (ITLS), and the Emergency Nurse Pediatric Course (ENPC).
Our experienced faculty provide more than just a card renewal, rather students leave with a knowledge of "real world" cases, recent advances within emergency medicine, and how medical liability effects every member of the health care team. As Sharon Kelley, CEO of AIEME, is often quoted - "we have to make ACLS and PALS a lifestyle - not a diet." Understanding textbook material is the start but it has to be applied practically and regularly. AIEME has established "CommYOUnity Days" with local hospitals to assist in maintaining resusctiation skills.
AIEME also offers a wide variety of online continuing medical education (CME) courses including Street & Designer Drugs, Gang Violence in the ER, Courtoom Testimony for Medical Professionals as well as EKG and pharmacology tutorials. Video clips from AIEME courses may be found on the AIEME website as well as YouTube. All of the online courses may be taught onsite either in workshops or formal conferences.
The AIEME bookstore offers a host of reference material and pocket guides to provide students with the knowledge and confidence to effectively participate on a code team or simply deal with the unexpected medical emergency.
AIEME also provides a "concierge" service for private offices and centers. Many clients find tremendous value in having courses held in their practice setting thus enabling a realistic feel as actual staff are incorporated into practice scenarios. Private medical offices, dentist offices, and surgery centers have all benefited from AIEME coming onsite and providing their medical education on a timeline that fits the needs of the client, patient, and business. This concierge service extends beyond renewal courses to consultation services focusing on office preparedness and prevention of adverse events. The consultation can be as simple has reviewing a code cart and organizing it in a way that makes it user friendly to a complete office review in preparation for upcoming state or accreditation inspections. Our concierge service is just that, flexible and customizable to the spectrum of our clients' needs even including "emergency" courses to update certifications.
AIEME strives to provide the highest caliber of education to ever increase the level of patient care. This can only be done by demonstrating a care for the provider themselves and meeting their educational needs first.
