In January of 2019, ALiEM was able to continue leveraging the power of social media by delivering high quality educational content to Instagram. We love your enthusiasm for our weekly #TrickoftheTradeTuesday posts and hope you check out our content if you haven’t visited yet. It has been inspiring to follow the many residency programs who have a presence on Instagram, and so we’ve come up with a way to try and help you disseminate all of your hard work. Read on to learn more about the ALiEM “Gram” Rounds!

The Idea

Your conference didactics, gamification, and wellness initiatives have blown us away and got us thinking: what if we could help residency programs disseminate the amazing teaching points, educational innovations, and on shift learning to a broader audience? 

Contest Details

ALiEM is proud to introduce the ALiEM ‘Gram’ Rounds Contest. We are looking to crown one residency program as the world’s most educationally innovative and engaging program. Follow these steps in order to participate:

  1. Follow @aliemteam on Instagram. Encourage all residents, medical students, faculty, and official residency profiles from your program to follow so they can participate. The more engagement, the better chance of winning!
  2. From July 1st to July 12th, if you have an awesome teaching point or wellness activity related to your residency, snap a photo or video and add it to your Instagram Story. 
  3. Tag @aliemteam in the post and use the hashtag #ALiEMGramRounds
  4. Be sure to denote which residency you are part of so your program can receive credit!

The residency with the combination of most tags and most creative content will be the winner of ALiEM Gram Rounds. Winners will be exclusively featured on the ALiEM Instagram Account with a spotlight video highlighting your residency, educators, and content! The contest will take place July 1st-12th and any emergency medicine training program can compete (including PAs and NPs). Happy Gramming!
