After a hiatus due to COVID-19, EMGLEX is proud to announce that our flagship exchange program has returned as of January, 2023! The entire 2023 calendar is now full, but we encourage residents and young attendings interested in learning more about emergency medicine around the world to apply for this valuable opportunity next year! See the link at the top of the page to apply.
Please note, we do occasionally have last minute openings in the schedule, so please contact us if you would like to be on a waiting list if such a spot should open up!
As before, clinical shifts will be observation only, but as a member of a small care team consisting of either an attending alone, or with a resident as well. Participants will also benefit from a rich collection of didactics, simulation, and other special opportunities detailed below.
Our one-month exchange program consists of the following clinical experiences:
(Please note that all shifts will be observation-only due to US licensing regulations):
Participants are also invited to weekly didactic conferences with EM residents from multiple area residency programs
Participants will also attend one-on-one SIM lab procedure training sessions, special SIM sessions depending on academic calendar, toxicology conferences, citywide resident conferences, the Illinois College of Emergency Medicine Annual Conference, the American College of Emergency Physicians Annual National Scientific Assembly, and more based on availability.
Finally, participants will enjoy meals, concerts and social events, as well as some time off to explore the city and travel!
Participants live together in our lovely, recently gut-rehabbed EMGLEX apartment, which is fully furnished, all-inclusive, centrally located, and reserved for our use indefinitely. Program participants are required to stay in this apartment in order to keep costs reasonable for everyone.
