In April 2019, a group of intrepid readers embarked on an adventure together: the debut session of The Leader’s Library, ALiEM’s new career development book club. Learners and instructors from around the world read and discussed Dr. Brené Brown’s newest book, Dare to Lead, on a 5 day journey via Slack. Each day had its own theme (Rumbling with Vulnerability, Values, Empathy and Shame, Learning to Rise, and Toolkit), and the asynchronous discussion was robust. A day-by-day breakdown of our conversation, along with tangible takeaways and recommendations for further reading, is summarized below.
ALiEM has generated an annual report every year since 2013 to summarize our team’s work, and reflect on both the organizational goals we have met and accomplishments we have achieved. 2017 is no different. Under the leadership of Dr. Michelle Lin, ALiEM has grown to become an international organization with over 80 volunteers, all helping to write for the blog and contribute to projects like ALiEMU, the MEdIC Series (in its fifth year), the Chief Resident Incubator (in its third year), Faculty Incubator (in its second year), and the new Wellness Think Tank. We share this report to update our audience and volunteers on all that’s gone on this past year and give a sense of where we are headed in 2018!
Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 ALiEM Awards! We reviewed some truly incredible submissions in all 3 categories – all were high caliber! Ultimately, we felt that the winners best represent the true spirit of medical education and digital innovation.
Thanks to all who continue to contribute to medical education! We are inspired by each of you.
We are proud to announce the return of the Annual ALiEM Awards! Started in 2016, this was the first in its kind to officially recognize the hard work and creative energy that is required in the generation of social media educational content. We are excited to bring it back to shine the spotlight on another year’s worth of high performers and game changers in medical education!
Each year we’ve generated this report we’ve been flabbergasted by how much our team continues to grow and develop. This year is no different. January is the time that the ALiEM team tends to take a step back and reflect about where we have been and where we are hoping to go!
2016 has been an incredible year. The breadth and depth of our team’s work has increased, and we have seen the launch of many new innovations and projects. Under the leadership of Dr. Michelle Lin, the ALiEM team has grown to become an international organization with over 80 volunteers all helping to not only write for the blog (such as the new IDEA series), but also to create new projects like our Faculty Incubator (affectionately known as the “Facubator”), the Fellowship Incubator (“Fincubator”), and the Wellness Think Tank.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the first edition of the ALiEM In-Training Exam Prep Book in both PDF and iBook form. This free book was a year-long project from the Chief Resident Incubator, led by the Editors Dr. Michael Gottlieb, Dr. Dorothy Habrat, Dr. Margaret Sheehy, Dr. Samuel Zidovetsky, and Dr. Adaira Chou with the support of Associate Editors Dr. Nikita Joshi and Dr. Michelle Lin. Over 90 EM residents and faculty from the Incubator and across U.S. emergency medicine residency programs contributed board-review type questions. Five practice tests are included for those preparing for the in-training exam (also known as the in-service exam) or even for the ABEM written board exam. You can download the free PDF or iBook below.
Congratulations to the winners of the first ever 2016 ALiEM Awards! We had great submissions and the decision making process was tough, but ultimately we felt that these winners represent the true spirit of medical education and digital innovation!
Most of all, congratulations to all the submissions, we are proud of all you do for the medical education community!
