iCubed: Impart, Instruct, & Inspire by Alice S. Y. Lee, MD

Dr. Lee shares what she has learned as an emergency physician in a high-acuity, high-volume hospital over her 26-year career in a monthly screencast — a podcast coupled with slides — where she discusses fascinating and interesting cases with colleagues. They dissect each case from presentation to diagnosis and disposition, trying to demonstrate "real" emergency medicine practice for the community emergency physician.

Dr. Lee was motivated to share her most interesting cases to 
impart, instruct, and inspire emergency physicians who are out there day after day, shift after shift, just doing their job. Those three Is give the screencast its name: iCubed. The screencast will impart knowledge to apply to everyday emergency medicine practice, instruct on the subtle and individual variations of compassionate bedside patient care, and most of all, inspire excellence in the practice of emergency medicine.

"I still love the medicine after all these years of practice. What we do really matters, but once we have finished our formal training, which is very organized and regimented, we are out in the real world," Dr. Lee said. "The difference between academic and clinical emergency medicine can be quite confusing and frustrating. My hope is to demonstrate how in real practice one goes about giving the best patient care possible. I will do this by walking through a real case each month, discussing the thought process as we go through the case."
