I am Lainie Yarris, Residency Director at OHSU: How I Work Smarter

In the first post for the “How I Work Smarter” series, I called out Dr. Esther Choo (@choo_ek), who then called out superstar educator Dr. Lainie Yarris (@lainieyarris) from OHSU. A quick Pubmed search of her name scrolls on and on, that I can’t even do justice about summarizing. Oh, and did I mention that she’s also the residency director for her department’s EM program? She was featured on a recent EM Match Advice Google Hangout video. Lainie kindly shares her secrets on working smarter.

EM Match Advice: The EM Rotation, ERAS, and Am I Competitive?

Today launches a series of Google Hangout videos, which was created and expertly facilitated by Dr. Michael Gisondi (@MikeGisondi) from Northwestern. In this series, he recruited an amazing panel of program directors from around the country, who have kindly volunteered their time to share their insights and expertise. In these videos, you get a sense of each panelist’s personalities while they outdo each other with behind-the-scenes advice and stories, which would normally be shared only at the institutional level. Our videocasts are a unique must-see for medical students interested in and applying into Emergency Medicine (EM). Keep a look out for more videos in the future! (more…)

I am Natalie May – Emergency physician and blogger at St Emlyn’s: How I Work Smarter

In this new installment in the “How I Work Smarter” series, we managed to find one of Dr. Victoria Brazil’s (@SocraticEM) call-outs. Today we feature Dr. Natalie May (@_NMay), who is from Manchester, UK and is an active star blogger at St Emlyn’s. If you haven’t read it before, this is definitely a blog worth following. I like to think of ALiEM as the St Emlyn’s from across the pond. Natalie was kind enough to provide her insightful tips.
