UAB/EM was originally created in 2009 by Dr. Jim Galbraith and Dr. James (Stu) Booth. Since that time, it has grown to become a central online hub for the UAB Emergency Medicine Residency Program.
UAB/EM was a project developed to enhance the teaching of residents and medical students in the emergency department. The website is 100% developed and maintained by residents and faculty. It has been showcased at conferences including the 2011 SAEM National Conference in Boston, the 2011 CORD Academic Assembly in San Diego, and the 2013 Huntsville Scholars Institute.
The majority of the UAB/EM content is restricted to authorized personnel associated with the emergency department such as faculty, residents, and students.
Below, you can view a selected list of some features now offered by the website.
