Midwest Medical Student Symposium


The AAEM Resident and Student Association (AAEM/RSA) will be holding its annual Midwest Medical Student Symposium (Midwest MSS) on September 17, 2016, from 7:30am–3:30pm. It will be held at the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in Maywood, Illinois (Chicago suburb).

The content of the symposium will be specifically designed for all levels of medical students, from M1-M4. There are many things to look forward to, including: " How to Match in EM," "Truths and Myths about the Interview," Program Director/Residency Panel and Residency Fair, Mentor-Student lunch, Ultrasound, Global Health & Toxicology Workshops and more!

Last year, this symposium registered over 150 students — be sure to register early so that you don’t miss out on this very popular event! This year, the symposium date will precede the ERAS application deadline, so you will have the invaluable opportunity to meet program directors face to face.


  • Registration is just $15 for paid AAEM/RSA members and $35 for nonmembers. Please note the AAEM/RSA refund policy.
  • To upgrade your student free membership to a paid student membership, please call 1-800-884-2236.
  • To renew your membership, please go to www.aaemrsa.org/renewrsa.
