Global Emergency Medicine Student Leadership Program

EMRA's Medical Student Council and the ACEP International Section partnered to provide a year-long mentorship program through which ACEP International Ambassadors and other section members mentor EMRA's student members strongly interested in emergency medicine and its global development as a specialty. The program aims to introduce students to the fields of global emergency medicine (GEM) and global health as well as the opportunities that come along with it. Students will also get to build a network of emergency medicine physician mentors who are conducting global health work worldwide. Through these relations, the mentees can establish memorable connections based on regions, GEM subspecialty of interest (i.e. disaster response, medical education, ultrasound, others), and intended career path all while being provided with a valuable immersion into major topics within GEM via journal clubs and group academic projects.

This Spring 2021, we will be recruiting our fourth class of students who are passionate and excited to learn more about GEM. We invite you to explore the various GEMS LP resources linked through this page to learn more about GEMS LP, its requirements, and application process. The application deadline for the 2021/22 program is June 30, 2021. For more information or questions, the GEMS LP leadership team can be reached at info.GEMSLP@gmail.com.
