WikEM is joining forces with AAEM/RSA to create an online collaborative educational experience for emergency medicine residents around the globe. The new WikEM elective offers residents the opportunity to learn medical writing and editing on an international platform accessed by thousands of emergency practitioners. Under guidance of the senior editors at WikEM with support from AAEM/RSA, the elective engages participants in active learning and synthesis of knowledge into bedside pearls. All content is then instantly available on the web and mobile applications for bedside reference.
Specific details about the elective are found here.
- Organize online educational resources for the Global Emergency Medicine Curriculum
- Create core content for mobile apps
- Participate in Evidence Based Reviews
- Edit and organize hundreds of board review questions
Most importantly, the elective is a time to have fun learning and writing about emergency medicine topics while contributing to the EM community through a common wiki.
