Gabe SudarioThe 2015 Essentials of EM Fellowship competition was fierce with submissions by U.S. EM residents from around the country. Based on the four predefined judging criteria (design, relevance, content accuracy, and innovation), one submission stood out above the rest. Congratulations to the winner Dr. Gabe Sudario (University of California San Francisco-SFGH), who will attend the 2015 Essentials of EM conference in Las Vegas as the ALiEM Essentials of EM Fellow with all expenses paid. Check out today’s PV card, which was Gabe’s blog submission.

We actually have a second winner of the Essentials Fellowship competition! This contest was held internally in the ALiEM Chief Resident Incubator, and we are pleased to announce that it is Dr. Maggie Sheehy (chief resident, University of Illinois Chicago)!


Runner Ups

But wait, the runner-ups do not go home empty handed… Four other blog submissions were also incredibly amazing. The following runner-ups will be receiving complimentary digital packages for the conference. This digital package includes HD livestreaming of the event and normally would cost $699 per person. Congratulations to the following 4 amazing EM residents, who are clearly educators at heart. The world of medical education is in good hands if this is the caliber of educators coming out of the resident pool.
