We are pleased to welcome submissions for the southeastern regional meeting Clinical Pathologic Case Conference!

General Information

Like the CORD-sponsored CPC, the regional CPC event will feature residents presenting an interesting case with faculty discussants working to solve the case with information available during the patient’s emergency department stay.

If you are unsure what to expect from a CPC, the CORD website has great information about the CPC and its purpose.  We plan to model our CPC after CORD’s.

Following all presentations, judges will select:

  • A top resident presenter
  • A top faculty discussant

Any current emergency medicine resident, including senior residents, may apply here.
