ACEP Leadership and Advocacy Conference
There is a nominal fee for resident members to attend the Leadership & Advocacy Conference. Paying for travel to Washington, DC, lodging, and related expenses can be difficult for the average cash-strapped EM resident. Many residency programs and ACEP chapters have funding that may be available to residents interested in attending.
About the Conference
At the ACEP Leadership & Advocacy Conference, you will have the opportunity to learn advocacy skills, be exposed to the latest issues facing emergency medicine, and receive updates directly from members of Congress. Additionally, there will be a section focused solely on issues facing residents. You must be involved to help delineate these policy issues unique to residents. You will have the chance to walk across the mall and take an active part in forming healthcare policy. Bring your excitement to learn and your desire to advocate for the rights of patients, residents, and emergency medicine.
EMRA Spring Medical Student Forum
Medical students – you asked and we listened! EMRA now offers a Spring Medical Student Forum (in addition to the EMRA Fall Medical Student Forum held in conjunction with the ACEP Scientific Assembly). In 2019, the Forum will be held before the ACEP Leadership and Advocacy Conference. So consider staying to connect with EM leaders and learn how policy can shape your training and practice.
