The Essentials of Emergency Medicine (EEM) conference is in May 2020, but opportunities start NOW. This conference is one of the largest live EM educational conferences in the world with over 2,000 attendees. The conference organizers, led by Dr. Paul Jhun, are again offering an amazing opportunity for EM residents anywhere in the world to serve as an EEM Fellow for the next EEM conference May 21-23, 2020.

EEM Education Fellowship

EEM is offering ERcast a mini-fellowship position to eligible residents anywhere in the world. Those selected to participate will receive:

  • FREE conference registration

  • FREE 4-night hotel stay at the Hilton Union Square, San Francisco, CA

  • A travel stipend of US $500

As part of the EEM staff, fellows will get a rare opportunity to experience the behind-the-scenes work associated with developing and producing one of the world’s largest and best EM educational conferences. Fellow responsibilities will include online chat moderation, social media management, CME preparation, research projects, and more. A common theme voiced by previous EEM fellows has been the opportunity to interact directly and develop meaningful relationships with the renowned, fun, and master clinician-educators in the EEM faculty.

Quotes from the 2019 EEM Fellows:

“This fellowship was more than just a chance to attend and work at a phenomenal educational conference. It gave me the opportunity to meet and work alongside other amazing residents and faculty that I don't think I would have crossed paths with this early in my career otherwise. What this fellowship really played out to be though was an invaluable networking opportunity with giants in the field of Emergency Medicine. I established mentors, I curated friendships and most importantly, changed my mindset of what medical education has to look like in the absolute best way possible. Not only would I work this conference again and again, I will be in attendance for it every year I can be. Paul and his team changed the game of what traditional ‘continuing medical education’ has to look like and it was a privilege to sit front row to witness and learn from it.” -Michelle Romeo, MD

 

“Without a doubt, the most fun you’ll have at a conference, ever. EEM is what all conferences should be- high-yield, exciting, fun, pinpoint educational pearls with a one-of-a-kind ambiance of comradery, fellowship, and shared experience... Essentials is truly something very special. It is hard to explain to my friends how exciting, educational, AND entertaining this conference is! I returned to my work with a renewed love for my specialty, my patients, and my colleagues. See you next year!” –Tim Montrief, MD, MPH
