SOCMOB = Standing on the corner, minding my own business.

For any of you who work in emergency departments, you’ve likely heard this history before.  Most likely the presenting complaint was trauma :)

What is SOCMOB?

This is a medical blog for all types of medical trainees, including nurses, EMS providers, RTs, med students, residents and staff/consultants.  The goal is to address common medical myths/pseudoaxioms, as well as provide free open access medical education (FOAM) on a variety of ED/critical care topics.

Who am I?

I am an emergency medicine physician in Calgary, Alberta, and have a passion for medical education, teaching, EBM and FOAM.  The views and comments on this blog are mine alone, and do not represent those of any organization.

There is also a food/wine blog that chronicles my favorite non-medical hobby.
