eResources for Emergency Medicine The home of FOAM (Free Open Access Medical Education (#FOAMed on Twitter)). Lots of good blog posts and a great place to go to find links to everything emergency medicine. The cutting edge of ED critical care. An excellent podcast on all things emergency medicine. Listen to this every month and you will know you are up to date. Expensive. Hopefully your department has a subscription they can share with you.

UpToDate is great if you have access to it through your institution.

eMedicine is pretty good.  Sometimes it is a bit clunky as they try to fit everything into the same format.

And, of course, Dr Google knows everything 🙂
