EMRA Medical Student Forum Information

Medical students have questions about matching in emergency medicine. The EMRA Medical Student Forum brings together program directors, interns who just matched in EM, and faculty to answer questions specific to your phase in training. General sessions answer big-picture topics, and breakout sessions per year to target exactly where you are in your training.

The Medical Student Forum is full. We are no longer taking registrations.

If you would like to attend the event, we will use our best efforts to accommodate you. Historically, we have many registrants not actually show up. We will fill these empty seats with unregistered EMRA medical student members who arrive the morning of the event.

Just come to the Medical Student Forum registration desk.  We will create a line on a first-come-first-served basis of unregistered folks.  Once the session begins, we will start seating.
