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.
Here is the link for the 2010 Annual Meeting, which is going to be in Phoenix AZ.
Check out the posting below:
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

The new contact person for this amazing opportunity is Jim Tarrant (email@example.com) now. He is the Executive Director for SAEM. He told me that there still are open positions and will know more in January 2010. SAEM is in the process of moving the main office from Lansing, MI to Chicaco, IL.
