On-demand CME is now available for Free Open-Access Medical education (FOAMed) content through FOAMbase at https://www.foambase.org/. In the prior newsletter, we discussed our product, origins, and our partnerships. Here, we’ll give a quick rundown of some exciting updates.

  1. We have expanded to included Pediatric EM Morsels to our list of FOAMed sites. We are now working with ALiEM, emDOCs, and Pediatric EM Morsels.
  2. We are going to be at a booth in the InnovatED Section at ACEP Scientific Assembly in DC. We will be in the sub-section labeled IncubatED and we will also be competing in the AngelMD Pitch Competition on October 31st at 12noon. We would love to meet you at the booth, and you may even win a prize!
  3. We are expanding our interface to be able to offer a personalized curriculum for EM providers of all kinds based on the states in which they have licenses and their specific continuing education needs.
  4. We are working with the Emergency Nurses’ Association (ENA) in order to offer education credit to nurses who participate in continuing education through FOAMbase.
  5. There are almost 100 articles available for CME!
