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 2017 EEM Fellows:
“I have always been interested in academics, and this opportunity gave me the chance to look behind the scenes at how world class educators put together a conference. Not to mention It was great meeting and interacting with some of my EM heroes like Swami, Weingart, Orman, etc. And this was all on top of getting to attend an awesome conference in the first place!” – Ryan Babienco
“[Essentials] is education catered to the EM physician…how we think, process information and make decisions. New, important information that is presented in quick and fun lectures that you can immediately take to your next shift. [The conference is] fun, entertaining, and addressed questions we have on shift every single day. [Essentials is] organized, clear, and made us feel appreciated and special. [It was] so so cool to be a part of the behind the scenes of such a huge event in our field.” – Megan Johnson
“This was an amazing experience. I've always had a hard time with conferences, because I never feel like I'm able to network on such short notice. The fellowship achieved the goal of helping us be exposed to and meet the faculty who have already shaped us so much through FOAMed. Picking Haney Mallemat's brain about echo and his awesome presentation skills or talking to Swami about how he sets up his resuscitation room are experiences I'll always remember. Their easy-going nature helped me step out of my bubble and conference like I've never conferenced before. The other thing that really stood out to me were the other fellows. Usually at conferences it can be tough to mingle with people from other programs. Meeting these folks who are at the top of their game right now was awesome, and I think that going forward, these will probably be the most meaningful connections from the fellowship.” -Nikolai Schnittke
