What are some good resources for PA’s that have recently graduated or even seasoned PA’s to stay up to date in the field??

WHICH field? Medicine is not a monolith.  There was recently a thread or two about CME, which is a good way to get a certificate saying you're up to date in the field, often accompanied by real learning.

EMRAP. Always EMRAP. It comes with so much. Cases, medicegal discussions, literature reviews, breaking news segments, corependium (a poor man’s UpToDate, but good), conferences (peds conference this year was FREE with subscription), critical care info, specialists are on all the time. It really is almost a one stop shop.

I second EM RAP put out by Hippo Education.  This is a great group of educators.  My field was Urgent Care, not EM, but I used UC RAP for education / CME and it was worth every penny.  Ditto to joining SEMPA.

EMRAP is not by hippo education. At least not anymore. Hippo does primary care rap, UC RAP, and EM Cast. IMO, the quality of Hippo went down after Mel Herbert split and took EMRAP with him, but I still listen to PCRAP

Agree 100% with the EMRAP recommendation. Frankly, I’m always a little shocked when I talk to colleagues and they do not listen to EMRAP, it’s such an industry standard. 

I also really like EM Cast and ECG weekly with Amal Mattu. Beyond that there are a lot of other great free podcasts, but I will just search for a particular topic and listen to individual episodes.

Ahhhh.....thanks for the clarification.  I did not realize that EM-RAP and Hippo Ed had divorced.

Shhh, don’t tell anyone but you can find a lot of what I suspect is originally Cat I CME online at YT and use it for Cat II (see A. Mattu).  Good information in several of the videos that I watched/logged yesterday.

The video talking about Killer EKGs was really good (and short).  He also has one on PEA which was fantastic as well (“Forget the H’s/T’s and focus on....”).

EM:RAP also includes Emergency Medical Abstracts, which is probably the best way to stay current with the literature. 

Not only was there a free virtual PEM conference last year, there will be a trauma and cardiology conference this year. All included with your subscription. 

They also started a new EM:RAP PA Edition, which provides commentary from a PA perspective.
