Welcome new ALiEM-EMRA fellow Scott Kobner

We are excited to announce our inaugural 2014-15 ALiEM-EMRA Fellow for Social Media and Digital Scholarship, Scott Kobner, who is a second-year medical student at New York University School of Medicine. Scott brings a unique perspective to ALiEM and the FOAM community. He has worn many hats in the past, which will serve him well towards being a more versatile and mature clinician. He has been an EMT and EMT trainer, a scribe, a child-life volunteer, and New York Free Clinic patient educator. His focus recently has been on improving patient education especially in the Emergency Department.

We were especially impressed with his initiative in creating a new blog and podcast site called Ed in the ED, which stands for Education in the Emergency Department. He seems to have identified an untouched niche in the online education community thus far in EM. Scott’s proposed project is to further develop this patient education website and podcast site with an eye towards bringing this topic more into the forefront of medical education and framing the discussions with the current literature.

Dr. Nikita Joshi (Fellowship Director) and I both independently jotted down “LOVE HIM” in our notes.


Scott, however, was not the only one with amazing ideas and star potential. We are also sad to have to turn down the others. We so wished that we could have brought ALL of them on our team. We hope that they re-apply, and/or connect with us down the road to let us know how you are doing. We are always happy to serve as a sounding board.

Please help us in welcoming Scott to our ALiEM team!
