COPA STRONG is the official Free Open Access to Medical Education (FOAMed) blog of the Creighton/Maricopa Emergency Medicine Residency in Phoenix, Arizona. While COPA STRONG covers an eclectic mix of topics in the field of Emergency Medicine, it has a particular focus on aggressive yet nuanced resuscitation strategies for caring for the critically ill. The blog reviews the latest and greatest literature, opinions, and techniques. COPA STRONG is largely resident-driven, spearheaded by its co-founders Richie Cunningham, Jon Kelley, and Brendan Tarzia and peer-reviewed by our faculty members.
