MEdICYear2BookCoverThe ALiEM Medical Education in Cases (MEdIC) Series has been a regular feature of our website for almost 3 years.  It has been previously featured as a Top 5 What Works abstract at the International Conference on Residency Education in 2014. At the time of our ICRE presentation, we presented our free e-book of our first years’ cases.  Now, it’s time for our second edition.


As before, we would like to give a big thank you to the ALiEM and #FOAMed community at large for participating in all our discussions and helping us to craft this work.  We are pleased to announce that a fully edited version of our MEdIC cases from the 2014-2015 season is now available as a free book available in PDF form via ResearchGate (32 mb)!

To get the book, you simply need to register via the form below.  You may email us directly if you are unable to access the free e-book in this manner.

As you are downloading the e-book, we are always looking for participation and engagement from the #FOAMed community. Check out our cases from this year (and other years) at our MEdIC page.
