Here it is, the first ever EDExam Podcast!!
Why record a podcast?
One of the cornerstone pieces of advice for anyone sitting the ACEM Fellowship Exam is “get lots of advice from lots of people”, as everyone has different tips that worked for them, and if you only ask one or two people for advice, you may not get advice that works for you. I was mulling over this concept recently, then it hit me. Of course! Why not start recording different people’s advice on preparing for the exam, and that way we can have a permanent record of the different approaches that people have taken, with tips on what worked for them, what didn’t, and things to definitely avoid.
For the inaugural podcast I selected a guest who took a very different approach than most to the exam.
Dr Amit Maini is a FACEM from Melbourne (via the UK), creator of the excellent ED Trauma & Critical Care website, who used some rather unorthodox techniques when preparing for the exam, and he overcame several obstacles such as choosing a bad, external rotation for his exam period, a paucity of study buddies and even tenosynovitis in his writing hand. For those in out of the way places or who like to do things a bit differently, Amit’s very candid interview will be inspirational, and for the maintream folk, there’s still plenty of great exam preparation tips. Enjoy.
