The Society of Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) is now the exclusive, multi-year sponsor of the Approved Instructional Resources (AIR) Series! This series has curated and graded open-access blog posts and podcasts in the field of EM since 2014 to identify and provide high quality, social media-based, educational resources for EM residents. It is one the most used resources for Individualized Interactive Instruction (III) credit, and plus it is free! We look forward to working more with SAEM, who shares our grand vision for medical education.
This aligns perfectly with our recently re-launched ALiEMU “be free to learn” learning management platform, which houses all of the AIR modules as well as the Capsule Series and In-Training Exam Quizzes. Check out the entire Course Catalog. We can’t wait to share with you the new upcoming content.
After listening to feedback from educators, and specifically residency directors, who use the ALiEMU platform for asynchronous conference credit, we have decided to reconfigure our learning management system (LMS) platform to accommodate more fluid and diverse teams in flexible fashion. Residents and medical students within the same “class”? No problem. Pharmacy students doing peer-teaching around the world? No problem. Your program is not listed in our drop-down menu? We got rid of that requirement to form teams. The possibilities are endless.
The 2019 Essentials of Emergency Medicine (EEM) conference is in May, but opportunities start NOW. This conference is one of the largest live EM educational conferences in the world with over 2,000 attendees. The conference organizers, led by Dr. Paul Jhun, are again offering an amazing opportunity for EM residents anywhere in the world to serve as an EEM Fellow for the next EEM conference May 14-16, 2019.
The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) features 3 quality improvement targets within their Emergency Quality Network (E-QUAL) initiative: sepsis, imaging, and chest pain. Most recently, they added a fourth new focus on the opioid epidemic. This opioid initiative covers best-practice approaches and strategies for managing opioid-related complications. In collaboration with ACEP E-QUAL, we have remixed and distilled 5 of their webinars into 4 podcasts.
The EM Residency Match Advice Series is back with its latest installment! We put the focus on emergency ultrasound fellowships, and our sage panel walks us through some of the changes to this year’s application cycle. For the first time, Ultrasound Fellowship Programs will participate in the NRMP match program. The Society for Clinical Ultrasound Fellowships (SCUF) provides the fellowship application service (similar to the role of ERAS, but shorter!) for the residency match. Hosted by Drs. Michael Gisondi and Michelle Lin, watch the video or listen to the podcast to learn about important changes to the application process and hear tips from our experts on what to consider when pursuing a career in emergency ultrasound.
Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) of patients who may have been exposed to HIV includes a combination HIV nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor emtricitabine/tenofovir (Truvada) plus an integrase inhibitor. The CDC initially recommended the integrase inhibitor dolutegravir (Tivicay). However on May 18, 2018, the CDC placed an alert about the neural tube defect risk with dolutegravir.1 How does this change our ED practice?
