EMCrit is a blog and podcast created by Scott Weingart, an ED Intensivist who practices in New York City. EMCrit is devoted to bringing the best evidence-based care from the fields of critical care, resuscitation, and trauma and translating it for bedside use in the Emergency Department. The aim of the podcast is to "Bring upstairs care, downstairs - one podcast at a time" - in other words, to bring the skills and knowledge of Intensive Care into the Emergency Room. Scott is a pioneer of FOAMed - Free Open Access Medical Education - which is revolutionising the way people learn and educate through blogs, podcasts and social media.
Listen to Scott answering PRN's questions about the origins of EMCrit, the FOAMed universe and challenges of the American healthcare system*
* After clarification from Scott, EMCrit is not on the curriculum on an MD/PhD course, but is on the curriculum on a EM rotation.
