You know the Essentials of Emergency Medicine (EEM) conference–amazing, lively, clinical, bundt-cakey. The 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 US EM residents to serve as an EEM Fellow for the next EEM conference in May 10-12, 2016.
EEM EDUCATION FELLOWSHIP
EEM is offering a mini-fellowship to eligible residents within the United States. Those selected to participate will receive:
- FREE conference registration
- FREE 4-night hotel stay at the Cosmopolitan Hotel
- A travel stipend
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. Perhaps the greatest benefit will be the opportunity to interact directly with the renowned EEM faculty – master educators and wonderful individuals.
QUOTES FROM THE 2015 EEM FELLOWS
“It was amazing – incredible, I can’t say enough good things about it”
–Natasha LaBelle (PGY4 at LAC/USC)
“Words cannot describe what an incredible opportunity this was for me. As someone who has been interested in medical education since early in medical school, I could not have asked for a better experience… Thank you SO SO MUCH for allowing me to be part of this process. “
–Gabe Sudario (PGY2 at UCSF)
“ I can’t say enough good things about Essentials and the crew (AND the CRincubator for the opportunity)… it was the coolest thing I’ve ever done.”
–Maggie Sheehy (PGY3 & Chief Resident at UCI)
”Entertaining, high yield, current and totally crafted for the ER doctor who has a limited attention span. Every talk is designed to be straight to the point, no BS. Essentials is not a conference, it is a show. The educational conference portion is all built into a larger master design that incorporates video, jokes, aerialists, food/drink, massages, fun activities with human sized jenga, random opera singers, prize giveaways along with powerful reminders that your job matters.”
–Chris Hahn (PGY4 & Chief Resident, Highland)
We at EMCrit are launching this contest for interested U.S. applicants in conjunction with Dr. Michelle Lin at ALiEM. For Canadian readers, there will also be a parallel contest hosted by the joint Canadian team of Dr. Brent Thoma (CanadiEM) and Dr. Ken Milne (Skeptics’ Guide to EM). If you from the US, you can only apply either on ALiEM or EMCrit, but not both. What’s the primary difference between the two contests? ALiEM’s submissions application involves writing a blog post and EMCrit’s involves creating a video.
EMCrit Submission Rules
- Create a video that is precisely 60 seconds in length (yep, this is hard! This time limit will guarantee you don’t spend more than an hour or two on the actual editing. Brainstorming an idea will of course take much longer)
- The subject of the video should teach the FOAM World something new or interesting about Resuscitation. Be creative, showcase your educational prowess, and teach us something about a topic you are passionate about!
- All applicants must be current residents in good standing at an ACGME or AOA-accredited Emergency Medicine program in the United States and be available to attend during all 3 conference days (May 10-12, 2016).
- Applicants should complete the brief online application and upload material through the online form below.
- The application process is open now.
Deadline for submissions: February 7, 2016 at 11:59 pm EST
Fellowship winner announcement: March 7, 2016
