We are very excited to showcase the compilation of our final season and hope that it serves you well as you all look to expand your online learning and teaching resources during this incredible time in medical history. We hope that you, your colleagues, and the greater FOAMed community enjoy this collaborative collection of high-quality cases and curated online commentary centered on educational, ethical, and professionalism-based quandaries.

As you all likely know, volume 5 was the finale for the MEdIC series, but certainly not the end for new educational content. Particularly now, during these challenging times, as we navigate our new clinical and educational environments, the ALiEM team continues to innovate, engage the masses and create a stronger online community of practice! It is inspiring how our community has really pulled together and has demonstrated the very best of the human spirit during the darkest days. We thank you all for your tremendous efforts and look to the future with a positive and hopeful mindset.
