“In every crisis, there is an opportunity.” This famous quote by Albert Einstein illustrates the opportunity to reinvent our Chief Resident Incubator (“CRincubator”) year-long experience. We had planned to retire the CRincubator as of a month ago. However, given the relative void in Chief Resident professional development opportunities this year because of physical distancing rules, we wanted to share our lessons learned and resources developed over the past 5 years. We thus announce a half-day, online, professional development learning lab opportunity to all EM Chief Residents. Come join us on May 6, 2020. Read more about the unique curriculum and our all-star speaker line-up on our CRincubator Live homepage.
A few months ago, the ALiEM Chief Resident Incubator launched a nation-wide competition to find the best EM residency wellness ideas out there. Today we announce the winner, Dr. Kory Gebhardt and the Northwestern EM residency program. Thanks to the Chief Resident Incubator’s sponsor EBSCO Health/DynaMed Plus for generously underwriting this grant, which focuses on the crucial and often underappreciated aspect of graduate medical education and training — wellness.
This month starts our inaugural ALiEM Chief Resident Incubator and this post is the culmination of a 7-day intensive writing project by our 100+ Chief Residents. Incredibly we were impressed by the caliber of writing and insightfulness of our members. Congratulations especially to the lead editors, Dr. Melissa Joseph (LAC+USC) and Dr. Jimmy Lindsey (Univ of Chicago). Looking forward to an exciting year ahead of us!
