Emergency Medicine Interest Groups

Professional Associations in Emergency Medicine

The following are professional associations in Emergency Medicine that offer discounts (one is even free) for student membership. Residency program directors have mentioned that belonging to a professional association shows extended interest in the specialty. Additionally, glancing over the monthly journals from time to time will keep you up to date in the current issues of the specialty and perhaps spark interest for research projects and/or scholarly articles.

AAEM (American Academy of Emergency Medicine)

The American Academy of Emergency Medicine is committed to board certification in emergency medicine as the primary indicator of commitment to, and excellence in, the specialty of EM.


Journal of Emergency Medicine (JEM)

Membership cost:

Student membership is free for the first year.

$20 and $50 memberships are also available (that include more bells and whistles).


Depending on the level of membership, you gain access to either the electronic or hard copy of the AAEM journal (Journal of Emergency Medicine), book (Rules of the Road for Medical Students), newsletter (Common Sense), website (EM Select?helps streamline residency applications), information about the yearly meetings, and discounts on EM teaching/review texts (EM: A focused review of the core curriculum, Rosen's Emergency Medicine, and Iserson's Getting into a residency: A guide for medical students).
