  • It’s fun… and it
  • Consider these three questions: Q1. Have you ever spent untold hours preparing a talk that was attended by 8 people — of which a few were cognitively incapacitated by a recent night shift and the rest by post-prandial stupor? (That’s right the lowest level of expertise is not unconscious incompetence, it’s plain old unconscious!) Q2. Did you go into medicine to help others? Q3. Do you want a quick, easy way to establish an international reputation as an effective clinical educator? Many of us interested in clinical education would say ‘hell yes!’ to all of these questions. That’s why it makes perfect sense for us to record videos of our presentations, turn the research we’ve done and experiences we’ve had  into a blogposts, and record our discussions as podcasts. Then share them with all the world.
