Virtual Mentoring Sessions for Osteopathic Medical Students
The AAEM WiEM Section is starting a new virtual mentoring series to specifically address concerns facing osteopathic medical students interested in emergency medicine. DO students face unique obstacles when it comes to matching in emergency medicine residencies, including stigma, barriers, and limited access to emergency medicine mentors. The goal of this series is to address some of these specific issues, offer advice and a pathway for mentorship, and provide representation of osteopathic medical students who have successfully transitioned into careers as EM physicians. Each month will feature an expert panel and Q&A session.
Student Benefits of AAEM/RSA
April 3, 2021 | 4:00pm ET
Presented in conjunction with the AAEM Resident and Student Association
Being involved in specialty societies early in medical school is often stressed by mentors, but many students may wonder what benefits the national organizations can have for them specifically. AAEM/RSA is uniquely situated to promote the concerns and viewpoints of medical students interested in emergency medicine. During this webinar, you will learn about the student-specific benefits AAEM/RSA can give you during your medical school journey and how they can prepare you for your career in emergency medicine from outstanding women in emergency medicine.
Virtual Mentoring Sessions for IMGs
Building a Rank List
January 26, 2021 | 8:00pm ET / 7:00pm CT / 6:00pm MT / 5:00pm PT
The WiEM Section is starting a new virtual mentoring series to specifically address concerns facing international medical graduates (IMGs) interested in emergency medicine. IMGs face unique obstacles when it comes to matching in emergency medicine residencies, including stigma, immigration issues, and limited access to emergency medicine mentors. Compounding these issues are the racial and ethnic discrimination many IMGs face as minorities. The goal of this series is to address some of these specific issues, offer advice and a pathway for mentorship, and provide representation of IMGs who have successfully transitioned into careers as U.S. EM physicians.
Each month we will feature an expert panel and Q&A session. Our next session will be on building a rank list.

On Tuesday, October 13, 2020 come meet virtually the first AAEM Women in Emergency Medicine Section (WiEM) Council. We would like you to know who we are and what we are doing for the Section. We will share our vision, explain the AMWA benefit, and discuss new initiatives.
In addition, we would like you to meet the leadership of our three working groups (Advocacy, Education, and Leadership) and hear their plans. There will be another call for working group membership after the Town Hall. This would be a great way to find out if one may be right for you.

Tales from the ER
We all have stories to tell. They are sometimes funny or inappropriate or heartbreaking. Others affirm our decision to become doctors in the first place. Come to an evening which promises to showcase the great range of human experience — to enlighten minds, expose vulnerabilities, and quietly suggest ways to overcome the challenges we all face each day.
How does it work?
- We are actively RECRUITING STORYTELLERS.
- All stories about ANY TOPIC related to your experience as an emergency physician are welcome.
- If you have a great tale to tell, please complete the form below.
