An email mailing list (or listserv) is a great way to communicate with a large group of people. Once you subscribe to a mailing list, an email sent to a single, common email address will be distributed to everyone who is subscribed to the list. You can find lists for nearly everything and anything!
There are a multitude of lists for various medical specialties. These lists unite people from all over the country (and world) from various practice backgrounds such as academic/community medical centers to rural hospitals/clinics. We are all connected by the power of the internet. The lists are a great way to generate discussion on clinical cases, the newest literature and the experiences of the list’s members.
Below are some of my favorite lists:
EMED-L: Emergency Medicine
Ped-EM-L: Pediatric Emergency Medicine
CCM-L: Critical Care Medicine
Trauma-List: Trauma/Critical Care
Pediatric Sedation Listserv
Does anyone else have a favorite list?
