Membership Application

We are seeking institutions to participate in the NFoEM Scholar/Mentor Program. With a goal of developing academic Emergency Medicine Scientists, the Scholar/Mentor program stimulates, trains and builds an academic commitment to EM research by supporting junior EM faculty and a mentor for two years.

Application Instructions are below and can be downloaded here.

Interested institutions are invited to apply before Monday, September 16, 2019. Accepted institutions will be notified in November 2019 with an anticipated start of January 2020.

Eligibility Requirements

Institutions will be selected based on their demonstrated ability to meet the following criteria:

  • Aligned vision/mission with the NFoEM
  • Adequate research infrastructure: open clinical research projects, research staff, access to regulatory and biostatistics support
  • A commitment to research: peer-reviewed publications and extramural grants
  • A research fellowship: the fellowship does not have to be within the department but needs to support the research development of the emergency medicine faculty
  • Junior and senior faculty mentors that are willing to participate in the Scholar/Mentor Program
  • Willingness to contribute the in-kind match ($30K/year for Scholar/Mentor Program) and attribute the foundation in related scholarship
