Best lectures and resources from the FOAM world that cover the core concepts that students need to learn while in training.

January 2012 - Specificity - Episode 124 | EM:RAP

Acid Base in the Critically Ill - Part I

This lecture discusses a quantitative approach to acid base management. It provides explanations for why acid base disorders occur in human pathophysiology.

Disclaimer - I have never actually seen people using this in practice out in the community. I have heard that it may be the newschool approach to acid base. Nonetheless, a great lecture and a new perspective on an age-old topic.

Podcast 138 - Vasopressor Basics

There is a ton to speak about regarding vasopressors, but before we get to the edge cases, we need to set-up a foundation.

Problem Solving in Clinical Medicine: From Data to Diagnosis: 9780683301670: Medicine & Health Science Books @

This is an old textbook - do not use it to learn up to date treatment. It is however one of my favorite case-based textbooks. You start with a patient case, and the author puts you in the shoes of the doctor and the thought process they would go through. Excellent dissection of the thought process. Great resource for students and new learners trying to transition from didactic knowledge to clinical application.

This is an EXCELLENT lecture on some of the fundamentals you should know about antibiotics / pharm. Talks about things from a big perspective approach to give you a framework off of which you can learn the details. This is so much better than the lectures I had in school on this topic. Highly recommended for students or for grads who still might not feel comfortable with these important concepts.

Shock and Hemodynamics in the CCU with Dr. Brown — Louisville Lectures

"Dr, Lorrel Brown covers the basics of shock including how to recognize
cardiac shock from history, physical exam and invasive monitoring. She
discusses physiology and interpretation of pulmonary artery catheterization
and then covers choice of vasopressors for therapy."

This lecturer, Dr Brown, is one of the best lecturers for cardiology that I've come across online. She has several lectures that I'd highly recommend. Also, in general, this "Louisville Lectures" offer very nice, high quality lectures mostly geared towards internal medicine, but also easy to apply in other specialties.

Learning how to learn: studying optimization.

Tips on making learning stick. Really important stuff, and the sooner you learn it, the better! Should be required reading for the new medical student.
