The EMBER Project – is an education, medical perspectives, and lifestyle blog from an emergency physician. I don’t know how my more serious colleagues will cotton to the idea of an EM blog with the tag lifestyle attached to it, but hang in there for now and you can opt out when I start posting about which banana bread recipe to use if you need to make up with your nursing staff. Seriously though, who doesn’t like a good banana bread, and honestly who hasn’t had a mea culpa with a nurse or two that needs repairing.
More seriously, the EMBER Project, is an education outpost for exploring our lives as Emergency Physicians; the focus being to discuss some of the essential but overlooked or indistinct aspects of our daily practice and bring them to light. Whether an intern, resident or practicing emergency physician, this blog intends to offer content that reveals what makes us good, how we can get better, and how we can do our jobs and stay healthy doing it.
For those of you who live, work, and breath Emergency Medicine, and devour online education by wearing out your Flipboard app, this is what happens when a daily EM lifestyle blog turned philosophical treatise meets Pinterest. Don’t know what Pinterest is? Don’t worry, just follow along.
Somewhere out there is an ideal world where learning can become a lifestyle, where content fits your specific needs, where people share their knowledge and experience freely, and where feet don’t hurt at the end of a shift. Somewhere out there, a collective wisdom about our daily EM practice brings us all closer together, working for the common cause of being better at what we do and staying healthy doing it. The EMBER Project has big dreams of becoming a small part of that change, I hope you will follow me here (and on our other social outposts) and share in the journey.
