Instagram: The next frontier for ALiEM in digital education

Instagram and ALiEMFor almost a decade, ALiEM has been on the forefront of digital education in emergency medicine. By leveraging the power of social media, we have been able to provide quality teaching pearls to our learners. Although we have helped to pioneer FOAMEd on Twitter and Facebook, you may have noticed our absence in your Instagram feed.

Today, we are excited to announce the launch of @aliemteam on Instagram. Alongside travel photos, puppy videos, and hilarious memes, look forward to bite-sized educational morsels and a behind-the-scenes look at ALiEM. We can’t wait to share with you some of our weekly features. Keep a look out for “Tricks of the Trade Tuesday”, “Flashback Friday”, and “Spotlight Sunday”.

Be sure to follow us @aliemteam, tag us with any of your own teaching pearls, and give us feedback!
