Chest Pain

Today I would like to teach you about the biggest, awesomest, most stereotypical chief complaint that there is in all of Emergency Medicine: chest pain. This is a huge topic on your shelf exam, and you really need to have an in-depth understanding of it to do well on your clerkship. HOWEVER, you have to start with the basic approach, and that is what this episode covers.


Patient Presentations

We are going to discuss a very important topic today. How do you give a good patient presentation to your attending?  This is the single most important skill you need to develop on your clerkship. Your presentations need to be FOCUSED, THOROUGH, and ORGANIZED. Don’t be nervous. There is a gold-standard presentation format that was published for all EM students by the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine. This is the format I highly recommend and will teach you in this episode. You just need to remember the 8 steps…


Today, I am very excited to announce that The Emergency Medicine Clerkship Podcast (and its affiliate website) are officially LAUNCHED!!!

Over the next several weeks, I plan on streamlining and simplifying the technical side of my publishing process. I anticipate that I will finish this soon, and that the podcast itself will be posting episodes at full speed early this summer.

I hope you enjoy the content. Please let me know if you have any feedback. I do plan on growing and adapting as I gain experience. With that said, if you have any constructive criticism or encouraging feedback, I would love to hear from you.
