Free Open Access Medical Education (FOAM) in Emergency Medicine: The Global Distribution of Users in 2016

lkfitz's bookmarks 2018-05-25


"Free open-access medical education (FOAM) is a collection of interactive online medical education resources—free and accessible to students, physicians and other learners. This novel approach to medical education has the potential to reach learners across the globe; however, the extent of its global uptake is unknown."


"FOAM, while largely used in high-income countries, is used in low- and middle-income countries as well. The potential to provide free, online training resources for EM in places where formal training is limited is significant and thus is prime for further investigation."
