Brief Description: Most of the same speakers as EM RAP. Excellent quality lectures on core EM topics, without the synthesized music & Mel Herbert’s irritating jokes. Less US medicolegal. High quality, but also much for serious/conservative in format.
Rating: 5/5 Cost: $99 per year
Brief Description: Amal Mattu’s monthly podcast
User Comment: High quality topic reviews, usually 3 or 4 per month with guest speakers.

User Comment: Excellent, short podcasts on a number of ED/Critical Topics. Also contains the “famous” awake intubation podcast
Brief Description: A podcast from two emergency medicine residents (Dr. Jeremy Faust @jeremyfaust and Lauren Westafer @LWestafer) that aims to bring FOAM content together with core text content from Rosen’s and Tintinalli (“Rosenalli”).
User Comment: Provides quick episodes which would seem to be great for residents and any physician looking to start using FOAM resources. They finish each episode with Rosh Review questions which help the listener start preparing for licensing or re-certification exams.
KeyLIME (Key Literature in Medical Education)
Rating: 5/5 Website: iTunes Cost: Free
Brief Description: 10 minute review of literature dedicated to medical education. Relevant and Succinct.
Brief Description: From the site - The Skeptics Guide to Emergency Medicine (SGEM) is a knowledge translation (KT) project. Its goal is to shorten the KT window from about ten years down to one year. To do this it will turn traditional medical education on its head.
Comments:This is a multi-platform project with a Podcast, Facebook and Twitter presence. The podcasts (which tap into the Best Evidence in Emergency Medicine resources) are formatted using a clinical question and then using the best evidence available to provide a summary statement. Additionally, it’s a Canadian creation, which always feels like it’s more applicable to our work.
Brief Description: Video and Audio content from USC Essentials yearly conference.
Great quality lectures and CME. Easily one of the best emerg reviews on the web.
Lots of the usual suspects from EM RAP however not much overlap on the lectures (as far as I can tell). The last two years, the talks are only 15-30 minutes, which means a tonne of topics are covered but you don’t fall asleep during the lecture. Also great for taking a “break” from reading while preparing for licensing exams.
Price has now become prohibitive for most, might as well go to the conference itself.
