[ENG] Welcome everyone!!!

Polish hosts always welcome their guests first, hence I am starting this post in English. Please let me utter a sheepish word of apology to all those who kept visiting the empty blog. Thanks for your patience and understanding. The transition from Pora Na TeleSORa on a dummy version of WordPress.com to this „ambitious” creation on WordPress.org has been a little challenging to say the least ;-).

Enough about my IT-illiteracy. I can already imagine everyone expects a word of explanation regarding this blog. So here it comes. MERITUS stands for „MEdycyna Ratunkowa” (emergency medicine), „Intensywna Terapia” (critical care) and „UltraSonografia” (ultrasound). Just a little catchy name for an amazing group of educational pioneers from Poland. Inspired by the #FOAMed movement we decided to write a new chapter in the history of Polish medical education. We are taking it Web 2.0!!! It’s time Polish EM and CCM joined the crowd of passionate leaders around the world.

I could write a book about our plans and ideas, but who on earth has time to read a novel in every post?! If you speak Polish and you are obsessed with anything EM/CCM/ultrasound, just follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook or sign up for our RSS feeds and you won’t be disappointed ;-). I will try to keep the international folks happy by posting in English!

And last but not least! A special word of thanks to Rob Rogers for organizing the 1st International Emergency Medicine Faculty Development and Teaching Course (#IEMTC12 on Twitter)! MERITUS would not exist if it wasn’t for this event. Make sure you mark your calendars for the 2nd edition in 2013 (Oct 21-25, Baltimore, Maryland).

[PL] Nareszcie!!!

To pewnie przychodzi Wam na myśl drodzy czytelnicy po wielu tygodniach klikania w pustego bloga! Wstyd i hańba, ale od teraz już się poprawię. Grupa już dawno zaczęłaby działać, gdyby nie moje niedociągnięcia techniczne, za które bardzo przepraszam.

Zapewne nie jeden się zastanawia, co my tutaj za rewolucję szykujemy… Owszem – knujemy, planujemy pełną parą, bo nam się marzy medycyna ratunkowa z prawidziwego zdarzenia! Taka z OiOMem na SORze (Upstairs Care Downstairs – jak mawia Scott Weingart) i ultrasonografią pierwszego kontaktu w małym paluszku… Wiem, wiem… Nie od razu Kraków zbudowano, ale międzynarodowych doświadczeń, pomysłów i zapału nam nie brakuje, więc szansa na sukces murowana!

Przyłączcie się! Pasjonaci zawsze mile widziani!!!
