The EMBER Project is about teaching Emergency Medicine and finding new ways and new tools to do it.

It started as a physician educator’s blog born out of the belief that in a world of rapid change lifelong learning goes hand in hand with being a great clinician; that keeping pace requires incorporating new insights about how we learn with new tools to educate ourselves. It has developed over the years into a larger experiment on the innovative use of technology and social media in medical education.

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 a collective wisdom about our daily EM practice brings us all closer together, working for the common cause of being better, wiser, and happier caregivers.
