ALiEMU Relaunch: Get a new account to check out our new look, digital badges, and courses

ALiEMU relaunch

ALiEMU is 5 years old, and we are moving out of our toddler stages and growing up developmentally. As we all rely more heavily on digital resources during the COVID-19 era, we felt that this was the perfect time for a major upgrade. Our team remains committed to the motto of “Be Free to Learn,” and in accordance with this mantra, all of the content on our custom learning management system is open-access for anyone interested in learning about emergency medicine topics. We also remain committed to helping EM residency programs who need a trusted resource for asynchronous conference credit (Individualized Interactive Instruction). We have hosted 12,000 learners and awarded 40,000 course certificates since 2015, but we are starting fresh with a new user database after the relaunch. Why and what is new?

ALiEM Statement Against Racism

ALiEM Statement Against Racism

Illustration by Dr. Moises Gallegos

Academic Life in Emergency Medicine (ALiEM) stands in solidarity with emergency physicians and learners in denouncing the structural racism and acts of violence that disproportionately affect persons of color. ALiEM denounces the senseless death of George Floyd which adds to the ever-rising numbers of deaths among Black men and women. The dissemination of the now-viral video documenting Mr. Floyd’s last desperate moments has brought a renewed public awareness to a disease that has for far too long afflicted this nation. We see the injustice and disparities in healthcare that are made even more visible during the COVID-19 pandemic. ALiEM is committed to taking action against racism and discrimination and joins the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM), and the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) in urging frontline healthcare providers, educators, and leaders to promote a safe, equitable, and inclusive learning and patient care environment in emergency medicine. We support diversity in free and open access to medical education and uphold efforts to embrace our common humanity.
