We Understand

The current issues faced by current medical students and their health and well being is our top priority. We understand students will not be able to do away rotations and ideally, each student will complete one EM rotation, typically at their home institution.

Therefore, we will be expecting only one EM SLOE in your application. We encourage Non-EM SLOEs, using the O-SLOE template.

Commitment to Diversity

Our goal is to create a medical team reflective of the community and the world we serve. We achieve this goal by ensuring the inclusion and representation of all individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and physical ability.
