About Emergucate

Welcome to Emergucate,

This is an Emergency Medicine (EM) blog developed with 2 intentions:

– to provide basic usable information for junior doctors who are new or starting out in EM. The ‘Bite-Sized Basics‘ area will contain a selection of searchable and concise topic overviews. Also usually included will be a Beyond the Basics section that will explore more detailed, complex, interesting or controversial aspects of the topic that will be useful for both the junior and senior practitioner.

– to provide Advanced EM cases for the consideration of the more senior Emergency practitioner. Currently this is provided through the Imaging Case of the Week and ECG of the Week. We also have an archive of previous Educational Pearls.

In addition we hope to provide a place where people involved in Emergency Medicine Education can collaborate, network, and share idea’s. This Educator’s Area is home to an Educator’s blog, and an Educator’s Forum for discussion of educational activities, content and ideas. To request a log-in for the Educator;’s Area please go here.

Finally, the web presence of sites devoted to Emergency Medicine education and Critical Care education is growing on a daily basis, we hope to keep track of some of our favourites via the EM Links and FOAM Eye-Catchers sections.
