About EMRA

Your life has never been busier, but you’re driven by the need to help others – it’s why you do what you do. We get it because we’ve been there too. You can rely on us to help you every step of the way, so you can easily find the resources, mentors, and connections you need to succeed.

Why do we do it? Because caring about others is who we are, and that means we care about you too.

EMRA is the largest and oldest independent resident organization in the world. EMRA was founded in 1974 and today has a membership of over 16,000 residents, medical students, fellows, and alumni.
