About KeyLIME

Key Literature in Medical Education (KeyLIME) is a bi-weekly podcast produced by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.  Articles that are important, innovative, or will impact your educational practice are discussed.

How do you keep up-to-date with the medical education literature?  How do you find the important articles, let alone have time to read and critique them?  In clinical medicine, the number-needed-to-read (NNR) is 14. You would need to read 14 articles from one of the top 20 clinical journals to find one methodological sound, clinically important manuscript! The NNR for medical education has not been calculated, but it’s likely as daunting.

KeyLIME does the work for you.  In each episode our hosts discuss, in about 10 minutes, the key points of a medical education article.

The KeyLIME podcasts are not specialty-specific. Listeners gain the advantage of hearing about valuable research that is published outside of top medical education journals or their own specialty-specific publication. In addition, each podcast earns listeners MOC credits under Section 2!

KeyLIME, the number-needed-to-listen is one.
