Two $250 scholarships will be awarded to two medical students whose essays best exemplify why they are choosing EM as a specialty. Winners will be selected by the RSA Board of Directors.
Only fourth year medical students who are paid RSA student members applying for emergency medicine residency during the same residency application cycle as the application period are eligible for this award.
Nominations will be accepted from September 15th to December 1st of each year. The winner(s) will be announced between January 15th and February 1st with acknowledgement at the Student Track at the annual AAEM Scientific Assembly and their essays will be published in the national RSA Modern Resident Blog.
