The Superbowl of Blogs: Vote us for "Best Clinical Sciences Blog"

 

award_lrMedgadget annually hosts a contest for the best medical blogs. It’s the Superbowl of blogs.

Our blog was nominated for the Best New Medical Blog last year, but got our butt kicked.

This year, we’re honored to be a finalist in the Best Clinical Sciences Blog category. That’s the great news. Unlucky for us, we are in the same category as the juggernauts EMCrit (also nominated in the overall Best Medical Blog category) and Resus.M.E. I do love the fact that the EM specialty is dominating with 3 finalists in this list of 5.

Need your help! Favorite medical apps

Plus, I keep getting school-wide emails reminding all the residents and fellows to attending!

New favorite blog: Wishful thinking in medical education

Wishful Thinking in Medical Education

I recently came upon this great blog by Dr. Anne Marie Cunningham, a general practitioner and Clinical Lecturer at Wales, UK. She has some really insightful posts about education, its future, and the use of new technologies. This blog has been in existence since 2008. Just as interesting are the tons of comments that she gets from a spectrum of readers. Check it out!

She is also extremely active on Twitter with over 2,000 followers (@amcunningham).

Work in progress:Translating videos into Vietnamese

Clover-1Sometimes you just have to be lucky to get projects done.

In anticipation of our Vietnam trip in October to teach clinical decision software to pediatricians (KidsCareEverywhere), we are kicking preparations into high gear. One of my tasks is to create new KCE-PEMSoft training modules not only in English but also Vietnamese. And no, I do NOT speak a lick of Vietnamese.
