I listen to ~90 #Podcasts on a (semi) regular basis. Let me give you a rundown of ALL of them and why you should listen to some amazing #FOAMed, especially for all the new #EmergencyMedicine interns. #FOAMed #MedEd #medtwitter
First of all, you need a good podcast app. I absolutely love Downcast. Great app, gives you more control over playback, downloading, and allows you to categorize your podcasts into playlists (picture 2). This is where you get to customize your #FOAMed experience! #medtwitter
In no particular order,

- Anesthesia and Critical Care Reviews and Commentary (ACCRAC). Great insight into Crit Care from an anesthesia perspective. Coming from EM, this is great to listen to- much different from my day-to-day! #FOAMed #FOAMcc #CriticalCare

10 things IMG (and USMG) applicants should know for the 2020 residency MATCH: I can’t help but recall how stressful the application journey was one year ago. I hope this thread helps out (instead of adding stress)! @ERAS @AAMC
Build your CV: it helps as you are requesting letters from mentors, or basically any email you're sending. Have a clear CV that speaks of your accomplishments. Do not miss a certificate or work in progress. Here is a link to how to do a cover letter.
Before programs see your application & statement letter, look at it yourself. Know your goals, or at least outlines of your goals. Know your weaknesses and SHOW that you are working on them. Practice your ONE LINER. This will improve your statement letter and application.

2/I wouldn't put it past me to have amnesia about the whole thing. So I texted some of my co-residents? Was I seeing things thru rose-colored goggles? Nope-they all said "Great time and Hard Work." Which is what I recall. With so many new interns preparing to start....
3/ Can you share with me some of the good times you remember? Because we surely don't want them all to start a new experience expecting doom and gloom. #MedTwitter #Twitternist #ProudToBeGIM #TipsForNewDocs

every year I give my #neurology residents a very personal talk on how I sought to overcome #burnout during #residency. I call it “finding the good.” I gave that talk to my residents today, and it contains my core beliefs as a clinician educator. #meded 🧠
(these are some realizations that helped me, and your mileage with them will vary. not all will resonate with all, of course. I welcome your comments, anecdotes, and additions. but, for what it’s worth, here are my educational mantras)
“finding the good” is a creative, proactive endeavor composed of generosity of spirit, cognizance of the gravity of others’ situations, deep listening, and creative thinking. there are no protocols or algorithms for finding the good, though a few pointers follow...

On the unofficial start of #residency, here's what I've learned about the crisis of #mentalhealth and #suicide for docs in training.

At the end, I'll share solutions #meded #medtwitter 1/
