Welcome to the Core EM Project. Thanks for joining us on this adventure.
Over the last 5 years as the Free Open Access Medical Education or FOAM world has exploded, a number of educators and clinicians have noted that a lot of the FOAM that’s out there focuses on sexy topics like airways, resuscitation and critical care. While a number of blogs and podcasts have sections with core content, there is an overall dearth of these resources. We love resuscitation and airways as much as any Emergency Physician. But over the last couple of years, there’s been a struggle to find great core content information to send to our medical students and junior residents. This is where Core EM comes in.
Core EM, is a multi-platform site dedicated to bringing all Emergency Providers all things that are core content Emergency Medicine. Our team wants to bring you a comprehensive site where you can find any core content topic you can imagine and we want to bring it to you with blog posts, podcasts, videos, tweets, livestream events and any other modality you can imagine. Really, our goal is to deliver core content in the true spirit of Emergency Medicine – to anyone, anywhere, anytime. And of course, in the spirit of FOAM, it’ll be a completely free, open site to anyone who wants to learn Emergency Medicine. We have an amazing team of residents and faculty that are going to be shaping the project as it develops and an even larger group of residents and faculty that will be contributing to the site. And of course, we have you the listeners, readers and end-users of the project. We hope that you’ll send along tons of feedback to help us grown and improve.
