Did anyone study some type of resource in advance for their ER rotation during clinical year? If so, what book/resource did you use? I have it as my first rotation and I am extremely interested in doing ER in the future so I definitely want to impress. Any tips would be great!

EM:RAP (not cheap but includes everything you would need and more - plus there is primary care content for that rotation)

Tintinelli's or Rosen's

CanadiEM podcast (their older podcasts did a chapter by chapter review of Rosen's)


Rebel EM

EMBasic podcast is wonderful

Did I say EM:RAP?

Life In The Fast Lane liftl.com

EMCrit (although I'd say this is mostly critical care and not so much EM, still good though)

I just found out Cook County in Chicago has a blog which is nice http://cookcountyem.com/blog

The Center for Medical Education has some really good EM review lectures

Essentials of EM YouTube Channel not as good but some good stuff there too

The Case Files book series helped me out a bit.  Remember that not everything you see is going to be high speed stuff like LITFL/EMCrit covers.

Canadiem's Rosen's chapter by chapter review is great.  ALIEM is good, RebelEM is +/- (my opinion).

@EMEDPA probably has some great advice as he precepts in the ED!

      Hi everyone, I received my first offer today after applying for what feels like a million jobs. The position is in emergency medicine. It's a hospital I worked in prior to PA school. They are offering me the following: 
      $60/hour with a guarantee of 120 hours per month (equals out to $86,400 annually) 120 hours PTO annually and 40 hours long term sick annually. Malpractice and tail insurance as well as CME credits through the company's online learning institute.  Benefits: medical, eye, dental and 401K with up to 3% match after a year of employment No reimbursement for licensing, DEA, or CME allowance as they provide CME credits through their online learning institute. I'm satisfied with the hourly rate, it's pretty on par with what I see in the AAPA salary report for NY new grads, but my question is - is this a good offer? The annual salary is quite low compared to the salary report for EM positions, but I believe that's due to the low number of monthly hours. I've asked for a signon bonus and I've asked to be guaranteed 140 hours per month as that raises my salary considerably, but I'm looking for opinions as I'm new at this and want to make sure I don't take the first offer I get just out of excitement to be offered a job.
      Thanks in advance!!

      Hey everyone!
      What are some VERY supportive comfortable business casual flats or loafers you have worn or heard that are great for rotations? Thank you! 🙂
