Just to let everyone out there know about a cool thing coming up on TheRounds (www.therounds.ca), which is a professional network for medical students and physicians, permitting an exchange of ideas and knowledge between peers in a secure network (verifiable credentials needed, but free to join).
So we are starting up what should be a pretty cool series of webminars in the next couple of months, and I’ve been asked to chair the scientific committee, so we’ll be drawing up the programme in the next month or so, so needless to say we should have some familiar FOAMed names in the fields of ED/CC and probably hospital medicine contributing.
We’ll be sure to cover interesting topics, controversial ideas, groundbreaking studies and set it all in physiology, with the philosophy of individualized care. I’m happy to entertain ideas and requests from the FOAMed world, and highly encourage everyone to join and contribute. You won’t find any “industry” talks here, I guarantee it.
So great topics and speakers aside, this will be a great CME opportunity, as the formula will include the faculty remaining active answering questions for a couple of weeks after each webminar, which will likely feature 2-3 talks on a given topic. Even better, TheRounds also has a system that keeps a log of your CME (including browsing time) so it will be really simple to tally every year.
So looking forward to this new venture, and hope to see a slew of the FOAMers join in!
