HEENT – 2014

AIR STAMP OF APPROVAL AND HONORABLE MENTIONS

Below we have listed our selection of the 6 highest quality blog posts within the past 12 months (as assessed in July 2014) related to HEENT topics, curated and approved for residency training by the AIR Series Board. Given the paucity of HEENT blog posts relevant to Emergency Medicine, we searched posts older than 12 months but were still relevant in today’s practice. We recommend programs give 2 hours (20 minutes per article) of III credit for this module.
