When the pioneers of Emergency Medicine were pushing to have the specialty formally recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties, they had to prove that the knowledge and skill set needed to be a proficient EM provider was unique to the field–not taught, researched, or practiced by other specialties. Their hard work not only resulted in the recognition of EM as a medical specialty in 1979, but also solidified this knowledge base and jumpstarted research in EM. As a result, we as current EM residents have more learning tools than we can possibly use. So where to start?
Dr. Lori Post addressed the Women’s United Nations Report Network (WUNRN) at their meeting entitled, “Political Will & Public Will – Fine Tuning for Gender Advocacy,” where she presented on, “Witches, Widows, and Weddings: A Political and Public Will Framework to Address Human Rights Violations.”
Congratulations to Dr. Lori Post on this incredible honor!

All the residents who work with Drs. Leigh Evans, Rachel Liu, and Karen Santucci know that they are going to have a great shift learning from this amazing educators, so it comes as no surprise to us that these three were received awards from another part of the Yale Community, the School of Medicine.
At the Commencement for the Class of 2015, these three were each recognized for their contributions to the education of the graduating class.
Dr. Leigh Evans received the Alvan R. Feinstein Award for outstanding teaching of clinical skills.
Dr. Rachel Liu received the Charles W. Bohmfalk Prize for teaching in the clinical sciences
Dr. Karen Santucci was one of two recipients of the Leah M. Lowenstein Award for excellence in the promotion of humane and egalitarian medical education.
