Program Director

Derek Meeks, DO, FACOEP, CS

Dr. Meeks is a graduate of Kansas City University College of Osteopathic Medicine.  He completed an Emergency Medicine residency at a Level-1 Trauma Center at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Michigan and has additional training in dive & hyperbaric medicine. Dr. Meeks has extensive training and vast experience in medical education while serving as a Chair and Vice-Dean at Touro University Nevada.

Scope of Training

Didactics are held on Thursday mornings for five hours and focus on small group discussions that reinforce AOBEM/ABEM core content in emergency medicine. These group discussions follow a modular format, with different learning pathways available to complement residents’ differing styles of learning. Weekly plenary lectures emphasize key learning points, and simulation is used to highlight each module’s subject matter. Once per month residents complete Journal Club, which serves to foster the necessary skills for lifelong learning and reviewing changing literature.
KRMC’s Emergency Medicine program includes in-house rotations in Emergency Medicine, Emergency Medical Services, and Critical Care. Residents also rotate at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where they gain experience in the pediatric emergency department, pediatric intensive care, and the trauma unit.  Residents also rotate at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, where they receive intensive toxicological training.
