I'm not affiliated with them in any way except I am a fan of the platform and regularly post interesting case-based learning scenarios there. I just posted one about paraspinal angiosarcoma and have others on TBI, neurosurgical instruments, lumbar spine surgery, and more. It's all free and there's some good clinical discussion there. It's also common for folks to remain anonymous there, too, but not always. For example, you can fairly easily track me down based on my profile info, ha.
Would be interested to learn if others are on this platform too.

Any fun equipment/devices out there for a hospitalist?
I have about $900 of CME funds leftover this year. I have a serviceable stethoscope I bought in April and can’t buy another one til next year (or I would spring for something fancy). I could always find some books, but I’d rather find gadgets. I have pretty wide leeway in using the funds.
I can also use the money for iPhone apps, if anyone has favorites.
