The Essentials of Emergency Medicine (EEM) conference is May 14-16, 2019 at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV. FemInEM and EEM have partnered to offer one mini-fellowship position to eligible residents. The fellow selected will receive free conference registration, free 4 night hotel stay, and a travel stipend of US $500.

As part of the EEM staff, the fellow will get a rare opportunity to experience the behind-the-scenes work associated with developing and producing one of the world’s largest and best EM educational conferences. Fellow responsibilities will include online chat moderation, social media management, CME preparation, research projects, and more. A common theme voiced by previous EEM fellows has been the opportunity to interact directly and develop meaningful relationships with the renowned, fun, and master clinician-educators in the EEM faculty.

Reflections from prior EEM Fellows:

“Essentials far surpassed any of my expectations! I’m interested in medical education and this experience was phenomenal and inspiring in several ways. I met world renowned educators who I’ve been following on social media or learning from via podcasts/blogs/etc in the past several years and formed new relationships. I seamlessly became part of the Essentials team and made great friends. I reaffirmed my passion for medical education and feel even more confident in my career goals and decision to pursue a medical education fellowship. This is a must for any one interested even remotely in med ed and entertaining EM conferences!” – Puja Gopal, 2018 Fellow

“Seriously, (Essentials) it is great. Being backstage, learning what goes into it all, meeting the faculty, learning from the lectures, getting introduced to the best possible way to spend our CME when we finish residency, leaving inspired, motivated and excited to go back to shift.  I cannot think of how it could be better.” – Megan Johnson, 2017 and 2018 Fellow
