What We Do

  • We bring emergency medicine leaders to your living room!
  • Want to know how to better prepare to match into EM? Want more advice on how to be more competitive? Want to know what to expect next in whatever stage you are at in the process?
  • We’ve got you covered!
  • We bring all this and more to your fingertips via video and audio streaming technology.

If you’re an EMRA medical student member, this is a cost-effective way to engage with EM faculty and acquire skills and knowledge needed to match.

To find out more, tune in to our next EMRA Hangout, every 1st Thursday of the month @ 7pm Central time or visit us online.

What's Next

EMRA Hangouts will be LIVE! at ACEP 2019:

On October 27-29, from 8:30AM to 5PM Mountain time, the EMRA Hangouts team will be interviewing Program Directors from all over the country. They have already signed up and they’re ready to go. These 5-10 minute interviews will be conducted live, and will then be available as a link in each program’s EMRA Match page afterwards. This will be a great way to get to know each program and the program directors on a more personal level.

Types of questions we will be asking:

  • What sets your program apart from others?
  • What patient populations do you serve?
  • What is the size and structure of your hospital?
  • In how many sites do residents train?
  • What types of research opportunities are available?
  • How do residents spend time together outside the hospital?
  • What are positive qualities about your location?

Are you attending the 2018 ACEP Annual Conference? Stop by and say hi to us at the EMRA Hangouts area. We look forward to sharing the interviews with you so do not forget to tune in live during the conference. Can’t make it? No worries, join us at the next EMRA Hangout, every first Thursday of the month!
