Making the Most of Your EMRA Membership

With so many benefits coming with an EMRA membership, sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are a few tips to help you navigate the waters.

Newest Benefit! Free ACEP YPS Section Membership

Did you know that ACEP offers 33 different sections of membership that allow you to connect with physician leaders who share your interest in any one of emergency medicine's many niches?

Building on that commitment to networking, EMRA and ACEP launched the newest member benefit this spring: a complementary section membership in the ACEP Young Physicians Section.

In addition to receiving one complimentary section membership of your choice, ACEP Candidate Members (resident, fellows, and medical students) are now automatically enrolled in the ACEP Young Physicians Section at no charge. Additional section memberships are available for $20 each (a 50 percent discount).

Joining a section is easy. Simply log in to and choose the sections that best align with your interests.

Join an EMRA Committee or Division

In addition to taking advantage of your free ACEP section membership, there are a multitude of opportunities to get more involved with EMRA by joining one of our 15 committees and divisions.

What's the difference between committees and divisions, you ask? Conceptually, committees are tasked to assist the EMRA Board in carrying out its work, while divisions have more freedom to come up with their own projects – but at the end of the day, both will give you the opportunity to be a leader and connect with others who share your interests.

Many of EMRA's flagship products were generated by members of our hardworking, innovative committees and divisions – what will your big idea be?
