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 St. Louis, MO for the 27th Annual Scientific Assembly, June 20-24, 2021 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.

What to Expect as a Student Ambassador
AAEM is working to ensure the safety and well-being of attendees at Scientific Assembly. We look forward to everyone having an enjoyable, educational, and safe experience. In preparation, AAEM and the hotel will provide additional hand sanitizer stations throughout the venue. Entry into the queue lines for registration will be regulated to allow for physical distancing. You will find markers throughout the queue lines to help you maintain physical distancing. Physical distancing is strongly encouraged and floor decals throughout will help guests to gauge their distance.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at email@example.com.
AAEM21 is currently accepting applications for student ambassadors on an in-person basis only. Please only apply if you will be able to attend the conference on site.
Deadline to apply: May 3, 2021 or until spots fill up.
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 June 20th through the final day of the conference on June 24th. 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 7:00am), 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 AAEM/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.
