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 Searching for Medical Student Forum Faculty

EMRA is searching for faculty for our Virtual Medical Student Forum this fall. (In previous years, this event was in conjunction with ACEP’s Scientific Assembly. Because of the changes in the application process, we are moving this virtual event to earlier in the fall.)

Interested in serving as faculty for our Virtual Fall Medical Student Forum?

Please complete this form by July 15 to show your interest. We will select diverse faculty in early August.

Questions? Contact Cathey at cwise@emra.org and 469.499.0150.
