Awesome annual retreat at Pocahontas State Park, where our residents spend several days off-site engaging in educational and professional activities, including a hands-on theme education (eg, sports medicine, disaster, wilderness medicine) run by faculty. The 2019 theme was MedWAR (Medical Wilderness Adventure Race), and our team came in third at EMRA’s annual MedWAR competition at ACEP19.
