MOCEP’s Resident Research Grant will begin accepting applications on June 1. Applications will be accepted until September 15. The goal of this grant is it to facilitate the academic growth and research expertise of residents in emergency medicine and to promote research in emergency medicine.
Whether you are a medical student; a resident on your first job search; or even an attending looking for new opportunities, EMRA has valuable resources to assist you.
The EM Milestones are a matrix of the knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes, and experiences that should be acquired during specialty training in Emergency Medicine. The EM Milestones will provide a basis for six-month evaluations for EM residents.
The Milestones Project was a Joint Initiative of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Emergency Medicine. For a copy of the emergency medicine milestones, please go to the following website.
The ACGME is a private, nonprofit organization that accredits about 9,200 residency programs in 130 specialties and subspecialties that educate about 109,000 residents. Its mission is to improve health care by assessing and advancing the quality of resident physicians’ education through exemplary accreditation. The work of reviewing specific programs and making accreditation decisions is carried out by 27 Residency Review Committees, one for each major specialty. The RRCs, which on average meet three times a year, review the site visitors’ reports, along with data provided by the programs. The RRC members then vote on the appropriate accreditation action for each program on the agenda for that meeting. Go to the following website for more information on the emergency medicine RRC and for access to the emergency medicine program requirements.
Resident Services was established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to help physicians in graduate medical education (GME) receive fair solutions to residency training-related concerns and formal complaints. Resident Services investigates, in a confidential manner, specific concerns brought to it by physicians in GME (residents, fellows, and faculty members) when the existing channels of communication or dispute resolution have proven unsatisfactory. Please go to the following website for more information.
There are three steps to achieve Emergency Medicine certification: 1) applying and credentialing, 2) taking and passing a qualifying examination, and 3) taking and passing an oral certification examination. Physicians who successfully complete each of these steps are certified as diplomates of the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM). Certification is for a period of ten years. Go to the following ABEM website for more information.
Many residents and recent graduates spend a significant amount of time and money preparing for the board exams. As a result, EMRA would like to help you to make informed decisions about how best to spend your time and money preparing for the boards. As EMRA neither produces nor promotes any specific board review product, the EMRA Board of Directors has sponsored a survey of recent graduates to assess their overall preparation for the boards and their opinions and comments about specific board review products that they may have used during their preparations. Every effort was made to include a comprehensive list of all textbooks, review courses, tutoring, and online products available.
