The 'Medical Education in Cases' series puts difficult medical education cases under a microscope. We post challenging hypothetical dilemmas, moderate discussions on potential approaches, and recruit medical education experts to provide their insights. For further insight and reference, curated comments from the medical community can be found alongside each case. These cases and the commentaries were originally released via the 'Academic Life in Emergency Medicine' website (www.aliem.com), and are still available as single PDF downloads. Our editorial team created this e-book to promote easy access and use of medical education resources for our readers.
Since these materials were originally derived as part of the FOAM, (or #FOAMed) movement, we are committed to distributing this openly.
