As emergency physicians, residents, nurses, physician assistants, and medical students, we are servant leaders in our communities. We care and advocate for our patients while working clinically. We also respond to the call to give back to the communities we serve. The EM Day of Service was created with this essential concept in mind. The EM Day of Service is a specialty-driven event where emergency care providers identify community needs and volunteer to address those needs.
While driven by EM residents and medical students, all emergency healthcare providers are invited to participate! Emergency physicians, PA's nurses, paramedics and others involved in the emergency care of patients are encouraged to volunteer in communities across the country.
• Pick a day - any day or several days - in September every year! Plan your service time anytime between September 1 and September 30
• By choosing several days during the month, this will help you manage clinical hours and volunteer hours. Perhaps some work while others volunteer and vice-versa. It's up to you to determine the most efficient scheduling of your volunteer project
It's free - all you need to do is register!
As soon as you are registered, be sure to use social media to get the word out! Use #emdayofservice to start the buzz!
