Stanford EM residents are strongly encouraged to participate in SEMI’s international activities. Residents have two 1-month electives in their 3rd and final year of training, and both of these may be international electives if they choose; there is also the opportunity to participate in international EM research and conferences. Most residents have found their international experiences to be some of the most rewarding moments in their residency training. Residents are also encouraged to seek out their own international opportunities that they feel will augment their training as an emergency medicine physician.
