Since February 2009, every issue of Annals of Emergency Medicine has featured podcasts that introduce and discuss a number of articles in the journal. The podcasts cover not only a broad range of topics but also offer an engaging discussion of their importance and relevance to emergency medicine.
Annals podcasts are created by David H. Newman, MD, and Ashley E. Shreves, MD. Dr. Newman teaches at Columbia University in the department of biology and is an emergency physician with the department of emergency medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. He is an evidence-based medicine editor at Annals of Emergency Medicine, authored the critically acclaimed Hippocrates’ Shadow, and is widely published in both scientific and popular media journals. He also edits the SMART EM and TheNNT.com web resources. Dr. Shreves is a board-certified and practicing emergency and palliative medicine physician, works as faculty in both the ED and palliative medicine departments with the Icahn School of Medicine, and will soon be the associate program director for the Mount Sinai St. Luke’s–Roosevelt Hospital EM residency.
“For us, it feels like a chance to chat about the latest studies and to have some fun,” said Dr. Newman. “And if it helps Annals connect with the global community, well, that’s icing on the cake.”
