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 21-23, 2020.(more…)
Podcasts are all the rage these days, and it is not surprising that some residents spend more time with podcasts than any other educational resource.1–3 But why? And how do podcasts fit with other forms of learning, like lectures, textbooks, and clinical teaching?
In our recent article published in Academic Medicine, we explored these questions. Using qualitative interviews and analysis, we identified 3 overarching themes that shed light on residents’ podcast listening behaviors and the tensions with which listeners wrestled.4
Last month, ALiEM launched a one-of-a-kind social media contest on Instagram to find the most innovative emergency medicine residency education program. Dozens of residency programs from around the country shared incredible didactic, simulation and wellness initiatives. At the end of our contest period, one residency program stood out from the rest.

It has been inspiring to follow the many residency programs who have a presence on Instagram, and so we’ve come up with a way to try and help you disseminate all of your hard work.

The ALiEM Chief Resident Incubator (“CRincubator”) launches its fifth class today. Every year’s class has a unique personality with wide-reaching projects. But all the chief residents share consistent characteristics – a deep dedication to resident education and wellness, a growth-minded approach to learning, and a desire for ongoing professional development. Are you an incoming chief resident in emergency medicine with a similar outlook, looking for a year-long community of your peers to share ideas with and bounce ideas off of? Want access to CRincubator alumni and respected educators in our field? Sign up early enough to attend our in-person launch event in Seattle on March 31, 2019 at the Council of EM Residency Director’s Academic Assembly.
