ALiEM AIR Series | Ortho Upper Extremity 2022 Module

Chris Belcher, MD |

air series


Welcome to the AIR Orthopedic Upper Extremity Module! After carefully reviewing all relevant posts from the top 50 sites of the Social Media Index, the ALiEM AIR Team is proud to present the highest quality online content related to related to Orthopedic Upper Extremity emergencies in the Emergency Department. 3 blog posts met our standard of online excellence and were curated and approved for residency training by the AIR Series Board. We identified 1 AIR and 2 Honorable Mentions. We recommend programs give 2 hours (about 40 minutes per article) of III credit for this module.

AIR Stamp of Approval and Honorable Mentions

In an effort to truly emphasize the highest quality posts, we have 2 subsets of recommended resources. The AIR stamp of approval is awarded only to posts scoring above a strict scoring cut-off of ≥30 points (out of 35 total), based on our scoring instrument. The other subset is for “Honorable Mention” posts. These posts have been flagged by and agreed upon by AIR Board members as worthwhile, accurate, unbiased, and appropriately referenced despite an average score.
