In each Main episode podcast 2 or more experts in a particular emergency medicine topic join Dr. Helman in a round-table, case-based discussion on key practice changing clinical emergency medicine topics, which are then carefully edited to maximize your learning. EM Cases’ Journal Jam podcast brings together world-renowned researchers and educators to keep you up to date on key research papers in EM, and the Best Case Ever podcast has guest experts sharing their tacit knowledge on particularly interesting cases. We also offer the CritCases blog and Waiting to Be Seen blog as well as eBooks, videos and courses.

Our Team, headed by EM Cases founder, host and editor-in-chief Dr. Anton Helman, consists mainly of Canadian emergency medicine physicians and residents.
