FOAMed resources are important tools for junior learners looking for accessible, quality information on topics of interest. Despite the large volume of resources available for EM staff and residents, there is a relative gap of information curated specifically for clinical clerks.
To help address this gap and support a growing interest in EM as a specialty, CanadiEM is creating an EM-centered podcast written specifically for medical students entitled “ClerkCast”
And we need your help to do it!
CanadiEM is in the process of conducting a needs assessment for the podcast with the goal of identifying high-yield EM concepts that are poorly understood by medical students. Each ClerkCast episode will present an approach to a common encounter in the ED, such as dyspnea, weakness, or back pain, and the needs assessment will aim to rank these topics based on their need for greater understanding.
If you are a medical student rotating through the ED, a resident brushing off your teaching skills, or an attending involved in clerkship learning we invite you to complete our short survey here:
Doing so will help us identify which areas students might benefit from some extra teaching in and create quality ClerkCast episodes to meet student needs. Any input is extremely valuable and we really appreciate your time!
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our team at ClerkCast@gmail.com.
