CDEM Faculty Podcast Episode 10:  Virtual Reality in Medical Education

Do you play video games?  Do you do SIM? Have you ever thought of combining the two to teach and learn medicine?  Well if you have then you are going to want to listen to this podcast! This month, I spoke with Dr. Michael Barrie Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and the Clerkship Director at The Ohio State University.  He gives us a great introduction to virtual reality; what it is, how it can be used in medical education, and what tool and equipment are needed. And if you are like me and don’t know the first thing about gaming, don’t worry, Mike breaks it down so that even I can understand.

CDEM Faculty Podcast Episode 9: The Disinterested Student

Hi everyone!  You are in luck.  Two episodes in one week. The January episode was a little delayed because I switched the podcast over to Libsyn.  There may be a couple of bugs I still have to work out in importing the old episodes, but I wanted to get the new content out to everyone.  

 

So, if you all remember a couple months ago I sent a message out asking for volunteers to come on the podcast and talk about a topic that interests them.  A couple of brave souls volunteered.  And so the next couple of podcast will be interviews and discussions with those folks.  To start us off is Dr. Page Bridges.  She is the assistant clerkship director at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville.  And she wanted to talk about how to engage the disinterested student.  We talked about why the emergency medicine clerkship is important and how to get buy in from the students who are pursuing a different specialty for residency.  I had a really great time talking with Page. And if you enjoyed hearing her on the podcast, I have great news for you.  I think I have convinced her to become a regular on the show.  

If you have a topic you would like to hear about or if you or someone you know wants to be a guest on the podcast, then email me at suzanatsao@gmail.com.

Episode 6:  National Clinical Assessment Tool for Emergency Medicine (NCAT-EM)

 

Hi everyone!  In this month’s podcast I had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Kathy Hiller about  the recently released National Clinical Assessment Tool for Emergency Medicine (NCAT-EM), which was developed by Jules Jung, Doug Franzen, Kathy Hiller, and Luan Lawson.  We last talked with this group in episode 2 (https://cdemcurriculum.com/2016/03/26/end-of-shift-assessment-of-medical-students/), when they were still in the beginning stages of developing this evaluation tool.  In this interview, Dr. Hiller discusses how you may use the NCAT-EM (see link below) in your clerkship and their current study.  If you are interested in using the NCAT-EM and/or would like to be a part of the study, please email Dr. Hiller at khiller@aemrc.arizona.edu.
