Why Foohey's Figures

Dr. Sarah Foohey is a community emerg doc with a passion for medical education. During her first three years of practice, Sarah revamped and lead the exam-prep curriculum for her local EM residents. She also loves facilitating sims (check out the Virtual Resus Room, her online sim education project). Sarah likes to boil down complex, uncommon, or overwhelming topics into simple-to-use, concise summaries.

Foohey's Figures can be useful on shift, help you prepare for an EM exam, or allow you to quickly review a topic that might make you a bit (or a lot) nervous.
