These are blogs and other resources we find helpful!
St. Emlyn’s: A virtual hospital blog with leading and cutting edge research and resources from our colleagues across the pond. I subscribe and they put out a great review about once per week and also provide journal clubs, tips for exams and really high quality reviews of key literature.
Academic Life in EM: Michelle Lin’s fantastic, peer-reviewed site on tips and tricks, new literature, best of FOAMed, and pretty much everything ever in the world that was useful.
**Amal Mattu’s ECG Weekly Series: A 26 dollar per year weekly EKG course filled with TONS of Amal Mattu goodness and pearls; have learned more in the last few months than I could put down on paper. Worth some book money.
5minSono: 5-minute ultrasound videos that are truly FANTASTIC and practice changing and make you want to pick up a probe.
Ultrasound of the Week: A great weekly post of a scan and a clinical pearl, done in case based format.
