MOCEP encourages medical students interested in the emergency medicine specialty to get involved during medical school. For this reason, a grant has been developed to help students learn about activities and advocacy efforts of MOCEP and its leadership.
MOCEP will select one medical student each year and provide them $300 to attend the ACEP Leadership Advocacy Conference (LAC) in Washington, D.C. In order to qualify for this grant, the student must attend the MOCEP Advocacy Day and commit to attend the LAC. The grant can be used to pay for registration for LAC and travel to and from LAC (expenses above $300 are the responsibility of the recipient). MOCEP will assist students in finding overnight accommodations with residents or board members also attending on behalf of the association. The grant funds will be provided as a reimbursement, so the selected student will need to submit receipts after the event to receive the funds.
The selected student will also be asked to submit a short article about their experience at LAC for inclusion in the EPIC newsletter.
To apply for grant funding, please complete the online application by December 1, 2018.
