Sit back, relax and let Emergency Medical Abstracts keep you up-to-date. We review over 600 medical journals each month so you don't have to. Let our physician commentators do the heavy lifting and create a monthly evidence-based audio series that you'll come to trust and depend upon.
Each month you'll receive an up-beat and fast-paced audio program detailing the key aspects of 30 papers by one of our three panels of physician experts. Plus, you'll also receive interviews, audio essays, EMA course lectures and provocative commentaries.
Thousands of your colleagues count on the EMA physicians to provide them with the latest developments in emergency medicine in a format that drills down to the key information you need to stay on top of the challenging specialty of emergency medicine.
30 Key Papers
Abstracted and Reviewed
30 articles from refereed journals are chosen by our editors from the 600+ journals we survey. Original abstracts are written focusing on the essential "take home" points. Audio summaries of the abstracts are presented with critique and analysis by our commentators.
An Interview With an
Whether it is an author of a key article or some other EM notable, each month you'll hear an in-depth interview by one of our commentators.
An Audio Essay on a
Leading-Edge EM Topic
Our commentators present a 20-30 minute audio essay, which includes a printed searchable summary.
A 30-Minute Evidence-Based Lecture
Taken from the annual Emergency Medicine & Acute Care course (now in its 35th year), you'll hear a literature-based review of a key topic each month to help round out your EMA experience (and you'll receive a copy of the detailed lecture notes).
Reflections of a Skeptic
Professor Emeritus at UCLA Jerry Hoffman, MD, past co-host of EMA for over 25 years, will provide a provocative look at a new topic each month. Renowned for his ability to dissect the sources of bias in the medical literature, Jerry always puts a thoughtful spin on medical information that causes us to think twice.
