This year's PEM Special Interest Group (SIG) will be a combined session with the Race in Medicine SIG. The session, “A Journey to a Diverse and Equitable PEM Workforce," will be an exciting opportunity for us to discuss and explore the current state of workforce diversity and equity in academic PEM, engage in a discussion of potential solutions,and identify top priorities for the future.
There will be exciting, engaging speakers and panel discussants. This year, we are pleased to announce a $600 resident scholarship to offset the cost of attending PAS and PEM SIG for a resident interested in PEM and/or workforce diversity. We ask that you please forward this email to any residents you feel might be interested in applying and to your local pediatrics and emergency medicine residency directors.
Applications will be accepted through December 12th, 2017, 5p EST. We look forward to seeing you all at the PEM/Race in Medicine SIG next May!
