EMRA Student-Resident Mentorship Program
Welcome to EMRA's Student-Resident Mentorship Program. EMRA is pleased to offer guidance to it's medical student members through the generosity of it's residents.
THE BENEFITS OF RESIDENT MENTORSHIP
In addition to attendings and advisors, medical students often seek out residents - who are closer in age and have completed the application process recently - for advice. Residents are in a unique position to answer questions about daily life, benefits and challenges of EM residency, and factors to consider when choosing our specialty. A resident - medical student mentorship can be a mutually beneficial relationship and can provide additional guidance for a person considering the field of emergency medicine.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Medical students at any level of training are encouraged to participate. Residents are asked to provide advice and help students decide if EM is a good fit for them by discussing the rewards and challenges of an EM residency, and offering a first-hand glimpse of what it is like to be an EM resident. Residents can provide encouragement, discuss what drew them to the specialty of emergency residency, explain the different responsibilities, describe learning and leadership opportunities and give advice on lifestyle issues from a resident perspective. Additionally residents can direct students to the appropriate people or places for further career guidance.
Please complete the appropriate application below to help us use our best efforts to match students and residents interested in the program. After submitting the form you will be contacted by e-mail to confirm your enrollment. Mentor/Student Pairs will be matched as quickly as possible and we will use our best efforts to find you a match. Response time will vary based on number of applications to the mentorship program at any one time. Please note that the mentorship program is open only to EMRA Members.
