Summary: Emergency medicine attendings who wish to hone their teachingskills can find a number of books on educational strategies writtenby physicians from other disciplines. However, until thepublication of the first edition of this book, they did not haveaccess to a text written by emergency medicine physicians onmethods of teaching that are directly applicable to teaching EM.This book was compiled to meet that need. Following the introductory section, which provides importantbackground information, the book’s contents are organizedinto 4 sections that correspond to the core needs and interests ofEM educators: Section 2 focuses on practical and ethicalconsiderations of teaching in the ED; Section 3 provides strategiesfor teaching specific groups of learners; Section 4 looks at theskills that are characteristic of the best EM educators; andSection 5 looks indepthly at specific teaching techniques andstrategies. Now more than ever this book addresses the needs of physicianeducators from all over the world. New chapters discuss lecturingto an international audience; using simulation as a teaching tool;how to make journal club work for you, and other topics that are ofbroad interest to medical educators in this field. Ingeneral, each chapter has been updated and reviewed to make surethe content was something that emergency physician educators coulduse in any country . The chapter contributors are widely regarded as leaders in thefield of emergency medicine education and faculty development.Authors were given free rein to develop their chapters and write intheir own style. They were asked to present their personal views onhow to successfully teach the art of emergency medicine, ratherthan review evidence-based guidelines regarding medical education.As a result, most of the chapters have few references. Thisfirst-person approach to a multi-authored textbook yields acompilation that varies in style from chapter to chapter andexposes the reader to a variety of communication techniques.
