It’s finally here! The second edition to the Medical Student Educator’s Handbook is finished.

Here’s the info from the CDEM website:

The first edition of this book, titled Medical Student Educator’s Handbook, edited by Drs. Douglas Ander, Wendy Coates, and David Manthey, was developed by the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) Undergraduate Medical Education Committee and Medical Student Educator’s Interest Group. In 2008, Clerkship Directors in Emergency Medicine (CDEM) was formed as an academy within SAEM. CDEM is now the national voice of emergency medicine clerkship directors and medical student educators.

This book represents the collaborative efforts of CDEM members to update the previous edition. The goal of this book is to assist EM faculty interested in medical student education in their efforts to develop a more successful emergency medicine clerkship based on highlighted best practices. This book is intended to offer the reader tools to deal with the challenges of running a successful EM clerkship, including addressing administrative and political considerations, promoting faculty, supporting faculty involvement, determining methods for evaluation, and developing novel teaching tools. We envision its use as a reference for up-to-date, practical information.

Oh, and did I mention that it’s FREE!? It’s a great reference for educators, chief residents, and anyone interested in academics. Congrats, Rob and Siamak (editors-in-chief).
