As a graduate of 12 years of Catholic school, I learned about (and committed most of) the 7 deadly sins.  I spend much of my time now teaching residents ultrasound, and reviewing their images.  In the 7 major US categories (AAA, Biliary, Cardiac, FAST, OB, Renal, and Vascular Access), I have noticed there are common mistakes most novices make.  So what are these 7 Deadly US Sins, and how can we avoid them?

Hypothetical scenario:  You think your patient needs something your attending does not, and it is not insignificant (ie, you want them admitted, more agressively resuscitated, etc).  How do you handle it?  What would you want your residents to do?

"Amateurs train until they succeed, professionals train until they fail."  -Chris Costa

In this episode, I discuss some lessons that I originally heard presented to military and law enforcement personnel in the setting of defense training.  All of these lessons can be translated to the Emergency Medicine Physician and Resident.

Did you know that female physicians still make less than their male counterparts?  Did you know that women comprise an alarmingly small number of EM department chairs?  Tintinalli may have written the book, but female physicians in Emergency Medicine (and medicine in general) still face a number of unique issues.  I talk with Dr. Kathleen Clem, Dr. Stephanie Abbuhl, and Dr. Esther Choo to discuss these issues, and what female physicians can do about it.

In this episode, I talk about a few topics that I have wanted to ramble about related to Ultrasound.  How much US is too much for the resident? Can you do "too much" ultrasound?  Is there a role for the FAST exam in stable trauma patients?  Is the US the new stethoscope, and is it just an extension of the physical exam?  Hear what I think.

Starting your residency in Emergency Medicine can be daunting, and sometimes there is just too much information to digest.  This is especially true in the world of FOAMed (Free Open Access Medical Education).  With so many blogs, websites, social media resources, and podcasts out there, where is a green EM resident to start?  With the help of the FOAMed community, I try to guide you to the right places to get your feet wet.

One of the ACGME core competencies is "Practice Based Learning and Improvement."  One of the best ways to do this is through patient follow up and self reflection.  In this case conference, I talk about how faollow up and self reflection have helped me, and why every resident should be doing this routinely.
