ALiEM-Annals Global EM Journal Club Series

Academic Life in Emergency Medicine and Annals of Emergency Medicine have partnered in 2013 to launch a novel endeavor between an established educational social media site and an established medical journal. This ALiEM-Annals Global EM Journal Club series draws from the natural strengths of social media blogs (global real-time discussion with learners, practitioners, experts, and published authors) with journals (expertise in critical appraisal).
