So, I volunteered to give a talk for the UCSF Office of Graduate Medical Education WAAAAY back in early 2010 on “There’s an App for That: Key Smart Phone Applications for Surviving Residency“. Somehow the lecture date has snuck up on me and it’s next Tuesday! I thought it was a small gathering, but it turns out it’s not. Plus, I keep getting school-wide emails reminding all the residents and fellows to attending!
The ever-creative and ambitious masterminds at Life in the Fast Lane has just launched a new feature called LITFL Review. This weekly review will highlight all-things EM in the social media world. Do they ever sleep over there in Australia?! Do they somehow have 25 hours in their day?
Keeping up with the EM literature is difficult, particularly when we’re also trying to stay ahead of the curve in our own subspecialties (Healthcare Simulation and Medical Education in my case). Last week I was listening to Scott Weingart’s EMCRIT Podcast and at the very end of the show he mentioned a new EBM resource: TheNNT.
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).
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.
