Professor Simon Carley’s (@EMManchester) many roles and titles would not fit in the title of this post, and so I mentioned the St. Emlyn’s blog because this was how I first learned of Simon and his passionate dedication for education. As the co-creator of the St. Emlyn’s blog and podcast, Simon worked with a team of amazing contributors teaching about EM, critical care, and medical education. Fun fact: Simon starred in a Trick of the Trade video on Ring Removal on ALiEM that thus far has >1.8 million views! He has been incredibly successful in two contrasting careers – the worlds of online education and academia. He has published over 100 academic papers and serves as the Associate Editor for the Emergency Medicine Journal. How does he juggle his time? Does he have 25 hours in a day? Simon shared with us his trade secrets.
Eve Purdy (@Purdy_Eve) is one of those rising stars in medical education, who “leads from the middle” in her role as a senior medical student at Queen’s University. She is already quite involved as a blogger at Manu et Corde, a Medical Student Editor at Boring EM, and as a part of the ALiEM Book Club team. I, along with many others, are eager to see what Eve has in store for the world of medical education in her early promising superstar career. Eve was tagged by Dr. Teresa Chan in a previous How I Work Smarter post and was kind enough to share her tips for, as Eve states, “TRYING to work smarter”.
I am Dr. Mike Stone, Division Chief of Emergency Ultrasound at Brigham & Women’s: How I Work Smarter
Dr. Mike Stone (@BedsideSono) is well known in the medical education world especially in the field of bedside ultrasonography. In addition to being a professor for the Ultrasound Leadership Academy and Ultrasound Podcast team member, he also runs the Emergency Ultrasound Division at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital. Like Dr. Mike Mallin who tagged him from a previous How I Work Smarter post, many of us have been amazed at Mike’s ability to juggle so many roles and responsibilities at once. Here are some his secrets to success.
Dr. Michael Bond (@DocBond007), who has probably one of the coolest Twitter handles, is a well-respected and well-established educator in the field of Emergency Medicine (EM). Because many of us are perplexed how he is able to publish a book on Orthopedic Emergencies [Amazon link] alongside co-editors Drs. Andrew Perron and Michael Abraham as well as serve as the EM residency director at the University of Maryland. So we were thrilled from Dr. Rob Rogers tagged Mike on a previous How I Work Smarter post. Mike was kind enough to send along his responses.
In the world of medical education and Twitter, Dr. Oliver Flower (@OliFlower) is a virtual celebrity. Oli has been a central figure in FOAM and serves the daunting role of being a co-organiser for the upcoming buzz-worthy SMACC conference in Chicago (June 23-26, 2015) alongside Roger Harris and Chris Nickson. He is incredibly efficient and effective, juggling multiple deadlines and responsibilities. It was no surprise to us when Oli was tagged by Dr. Rob Mac Sweeney from a previous How I Work Smarter post as someone whom we could learn a lot from. Oli was kind enough to send along his responses.
In her original post for the “How I Work Smarter” series, Editor-in-Chief Michelle Lin (@M_Lin) called out Dr. Esther Choo (@choo_ek), who then called out Dr. Lainie Yarris (@lainieyarris) from OHSU… and in an unexpected turn of events, Lainie then somehow decided to tag me. How odd… Lainie is a mentor of one of my friends, and she’s been kinda a hero to me, so I find that this is both flattering and somewhat flabbergasting… There is no way I fit within the ranks of those others’ whom have been tagged in this wonderful game of academic “you’re it…”, but as the great Barney Stinson once said: “Challenge accepted.”
I have known thought-leader and star speaker Dr. Rob Rogers from the University of Maryland for many years now as we have often crossed paths on the national lecture circuits. He has launched many successful innovative educational endeavors such as the EM:RAP Educators Edition podcast series (way before podcasts were cool). Now Rob is leading the charge as the Course Director for The Teaching Course, a premiere conference to mentor today’s and tomorrow’s leaders in medical education. Nominated for this Working Smarter series by Ken Milne, Rob has kindly sent in his secrets to world domination.
