Quotes from prior EEM 2021 Fellows

“This conference broadened my worldview with regards to what a career in medical education can look like. Namely, it is not confined to traditional academia, program leadership, or research; it can be about creating excellent educational experiences and cultivating a community of people who are passionate about delivering the best clinical care possible.  This fellowship gives you the opportunity to work with a group of dynamic individuals who are excited about teaching and emergency medicine. I would do it again in a heartbeat.” –Kristen Ng, MD

“I absolutely loved my experience as an EEM fellow. The content itself is amazing, and I think distilling pearls in real time really helps solidify learning. Not only, being able to see the work put in by the conference organizers and behind the scenes coordination was an invaluable experience for medical education.” Kelly Wong, MD
