Medical Student Ambassadors

Between medical school duties, studying for Step exams, and maybe a little self-care, it’s difficult to find time to network and get to know a specialty! The AAEM Scientific Assembly is the perfect way to incorporate networking, mentorship, and a deep-dive into emergency medicine and we want YOU to play an integral role!

Join us in Las Vegas, NV for the 25th Annual Scientific Assembly, March 9-13, 2019 and discover all that emergency medicine has to offer as a Medical Student Ambassador. Ambassadors are key players during the conference, acting as “knowledge-hubs” and collectors of invaluable evaluation feedback from attendees.

Additional benefits of being an AAEM Student Ambassador

  • You’ll be paired with a mentor and have one-on-one time with them to ask all the gritty questions you have about emergency medicine.
  • You’ll enjoy great food and greater company during networking events like the Opening Reception and DIVE into AAEM social!
  • You’ll create connections with your fellow ambassadors through fun activities and a complimentary dinner
  • You’ll be able to focus on your personal wellness by participating in the AAEM & RSA wellness committee events like mindfulness exercises and the popular Airway at AAEM event.
  • You can include this great experience on your CV!

Note: Applications for 2019 now closed.

Quotes from Mentors

“I enjoyed the experience and would be happy to do it again”

When do I need to be present at the conference?
If you are selected as an ambassador, please plan to be at the conference by the evening of March 8th through the final day of the conference on March 13th. Orientation with your AAEM board liaison is typically early the first day of the conference. Don’t worry, we know your schedules are busy so there is some flexibility.

Do I need to pay the fee to register for the assembly or is there another price for me as student ambassador?
No need to pay the refundable fee and register. If you’re selected as an ambassador, you’ll be registered by staff.

Is it mandatory to stay at the conference hotel, or can we stay with family and friends or at other cheaper places?
It’s not mandatory to stay at the conference hotel. Feel free to make accommodations where you feel is best. However, the ambassadors typically meet with their board liaison first thing in the mornings during the conference (about 7am), so keep this in mind for travel time from wherever you’re staying.

Can I attend pre-conference courses?
You can attend pre-conference courses, but ambassadors aren't assigned to work those sessions. If you want to attend, you'll have to register and pay for them separately.

Can I choose my mentor?
Mentor and mentee matches are made as much as possible based on educational interests and geographic preference. While we do our best to match your needs, mentors are volunteer positions so matches are based on availability.

Are any of my travel costs covered?
The RSA board provides a small reimbursement for ambassadors’ miscellaneous expenses, but the student ambassador position is at your own expense. You are welcome to plan your travels with other ambassadors, friends, or colleagues to reduce expenses.
