Please help me welcome Dr. Salim Rezaie, a star from the academic world of Emergency Medicine! I have been secretly stalking him on Twitter and finally found an opportunity to meet him and recruit him onto the ALiEM blog team while at the recent Council of Residency Directors (CORD) for EM annual conference.
Dr. Salim Rezaie

Salim completed his medical school training at Texas A&M Health Science Center, and followed that up with a combined Emergency Medicine/Internal Medicine residency at East Carolina University. Currently, he works as a faculty member at UTHSCSA in San Antonio, TX in an academic institution where his focus includes medical education, social media as a tool for education (FOAMed), and building the bridges between internal medicine, critical care, and emergency medicine.
