EMRA Medical Student Forum

The EMRA Medical Student Forum is a half-day session held both in the spring and the fall geared to EM-bound medical students.  Lectures offer evidenced-based advising to help you match in emergency medicine. 

EMRA Fall Medical Student Forum

The EMRA Medical Student Forum brings together program directors, interns who just matched in EM, and faculty to answer questions specific to your phase in training. General sessions answer big-picture topics, and breakout sessions per year to target exactly where you are in your training.

Due to the overwhelming response and registrations, we have expanded the meeting space and added additional seating.

FREE to EMRA Medical Student Members!  Only 500 spots available.

Additional Medical Student Opportunities at ACEP19 

After a morning of soaking in tips and wisdom at the MS Forum, swing by the EMRA Residency Fair that afternoon and peruse aisles and aisles of programs that interest you. Get a leg up on your competition by having face to face conversations with the decision makers!

Looking for a way to strengthen your CV? Interested in research? Register for Case-Con and present a five minute speech followed by a two minute group discussion on your favorite “zebra” case in front of a panel of judges.

Be part of many other EMRA events and meetings at ACEP19.
