About Us

EMsandbox is a Free Open Access Medical Education (FOAM) site dedicated to delivering high quality MedEd on Emergency Medicine topics.

What’s in a Name?

The name EMsandbox comes from the fact that I want us to “play nice in the sandbox” and learn from/with our other medical specialties. That is why many of our Deep Dives are interviews with experts in the specialty being discussed.  My hope is you develop a sound foundation through our Core Content sections and can integrate some of the nuances and ‘next step’ information from our experts.

I am a Connecticut native, attended Tufts for med school and Temple for residency. Academically, I have an interest in using technology to get MedEd out of the dark ages and into a format that caters to the adult learner.  My favorite food is lobster, my biggest fear is being under prepared to care for a patient. And the open ocean. Terrifying.
