Every year in DecemberÂ my ARDMSÂ renewal would arrive. Â It was only $75 to renew, so I did. Â My enthusiasm for this badge steadily declined from the early heady days after taking the Edelman course (which I thought was awesome). Â But this year, I burned my card. Â Resa LewissÂ and Mike StoneÂ have a great “clinical controversies” editorial in this month’s Annals of Emergency Medicine.
You should read it… and then burn your card.*
