MEdIC CoverToday, the ALiEM team presented the Medical Education in Cases (MEdIC) Series to the world at the 2014 International Conference on Residency Education. Along with student-researcher Daneilla Dmitri, I represented the team to describe the digitally engaging and educationally grounded environment that we have created in our monthly MEdIC cases.  It was an honor to present our work at this international forum and to be featured as one of the Top 5 What Works presentations. In coordination with our presentation, we are releasing our first FREE MEdIC e-book!
