Welcome to the Immunology Module! After carefully reviewing all relevant posts from the top 50 sites of the Social Media Index, the ALiEM AIR Team is proud to present the highest quality online immunology content. Below we have listed our selection of the 4 highest quality blog posts within the past 12 months (as of July 2017) related to immunology emergencies. These are curated and approved for residency training by the AIR Series Board. We have identified 0 AIRs and 4 Honorable Mentions. We recommend programs give 1 hour (about 15 minutes per article) of III credit for this module.
AIR Series Stamp of Approval and Honorable Mentions
In an effort to truly emphasize the highest quality posts, we have 2 subsets of recommended resources. The AIR stamp of approval is only given to posts scoring above a strict scoring cut-off of ≥30 points (out of 35 total), based on our scoring instrument. The other subset is for “Honorable Mention” posts. These posts have been flagged by and agreed upon by AIR Board members as worthwhile, accurate, unbiased, and appropriately referenced despite an average score.
