EM Quick Hits podcast

EM Quick Hits is a 40 minute podcast that contains 5 minute segments chosen from 10 specific topics by 10 different experts and educators. These topics are ones that either are not taught very well in training and/or that physicians tend to be not completely comfortable with. They include toxicology, trauma, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, resuscitation, human factors, addiction and pediatric emergencies. Each episode or two we also feature a Quick Hit segment in collaboration with The Canadian Journal of Emergency Medicine (CJEM) in which we cover the best of their peer reviewed ‘Just the Facts’ articles. There are also some bonus surprise guests on occasion!

The EM Quick Hits Team is: Emily Austin, Sarah Reid, Michelle Klaiman, Anna MacDonald, Sarah Reid, Natalie May, Justin Morgenstern, Andrew Petrosoniak, Hans Rosenberg, Arun Sayal and Anand Swaminathan.
