Hot off the press: Cool medical student opportunity
Posted Nov 12 2009 10:04pm
As a medical student interested in Emergency Medicine, I always had a hard time trying to meet academic emergency physicians outside of my medical school. That's why I always try to keep a look-out for great opportunities for medical students. Well, I just found one.
Are you a medical student interested in EM and available during June 2-6, 2010? The Society of Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) is looking for 10 medical students to help the Programming Committee to organize and staff the entire Annual Meeting. This is the primary annual meeting, which hundreds of academic faculty attend including most residency directors.
SAEM’s Program Committee is looking for about 10 medical students to work with their committee at the Annual Meeting in Phoenix in June 2010. The Program Committee is responsible for the planning, coordination, and execution of SAEM’s annual meeting. It is comprised of nearly 40 faculty members from programs all over the country. The week long meeting typically attracts over 2000 medical professionals and students.
As a medical student on this committee, you will:
Have your registration fee to the Annual Meeting waived
Have a member of the Program Committee assigned to you for future EM Pursuits
Learn much more about the current research and educational activities taking place in the field of emergency medicine
Have the opportunity to form relationships with faculty members from EM programs around the country
Interested medical students should submit their name and contact information to the SAEM office atJennifer@saem.org- Please write “Medical Student Volunteer for Annual Meeting” in the subject line of the email. Please include a very short statement of interest and an updated electronic copy of your CV.Tell Jennifer in the SAEM office that I said hi.
