As a Young EM Doctors Section we would like to concentrate on the following goals and objectives:
1. Address the needs of EM residents
By having a representative in the EUSEM Council, we will improve contact between European EM residents and EUSEM. In this way EM residents will be able to present their views and concerns directly to the EUSEM Council.
2. Aid optimizing the specialist education in EM in Europe
European EM residents are at the centre of the EM curriculum. They are thus in a key position to help evaluate and improve the curriculum.
In the future, section representatives could help further develop the EM resident path at EUSEM congresses. EM residents should be motivated to participate in these congresses.
3. Promote genuine research among EM residents to enhance our scientific foundation
As a strong scientific foundation is crucial for our future, we would make it easier to create projects between different European EM departments by EM residents and give structural help to start this up.
4. Improve relationships and share experience between European EM residents
By creating a network of European EM residents (e.g. in the form of a mailing list) we will be able to improve relationships by making it easier to have contact with each other and share experiences.
During EUSEM and MEMC congresses, informal meetings will be created to improve networking between EM residents.
5. Advocate the recognition of EM as a basic specialty where this is not yet the case
Become an advocate for the recognition of EM as a new medical specialty in your European country, e.g. by addressing your national government. By various projects the EM resident section will help you achieve this goal.
