First International Emergency Medicine Fellows Conference

The first global emergency medicine conference designed especially for IEM fellows will be at Texas Children's Hospital February 18-19, 2016.

It will be a great opportunity to network, find future project partners, learn how to "MacGyver" what you need when you don't have what you want and more. We have developed the program based on your survey responses to ensure that we are meeting your needs.

New Logo

We are proud to present GEMA's new logo. Built in close collaboration with SAEM, the new logo is designed to be unique, encompass the ideal of Global EM, but also have a strong tie to the SAEM logo. We hope you like it and the accompanying site redesign!

The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Health

Whether you’re considering a global health learning experience such as a clinical rotation, a research project, or volunteer work, or are preparing to work abroad, this is the course for you!

This is the first of three courses designed by a team of global health experts to help you prepare for successful global health learning experiences and projects. It provides guidance for undergraduate and graduate students, medical trainees, and volunteers.

FemInEM Website Launches

FemInEM, our open access for women practicing Emergency Medicine is live. We are very proud of what we developed and hope it, along with the established AWAEM, AAWEP and GWIMS networks, will continue to unite the community of women practicing Emergency Medicine. Each of you has in some part inspired the group of women behind this to continue to better the playing field, academic environment and clinical experience for women after us. Thank you .
