Since the 2011 AGM the Irish Emergency Medicine Trainees’ Association (IEMTA) have officially become a sub group of the Irish Association for Emergency Medicine (IAEM).
IAEM have played strong representative and advocacy role for promoting and protecting Emergency Medicine. IEMTA derives its funding from IAEM and operates under its constitution.
There is no longer a separate membership process for IEMTA. When you join IAEM as a medical student or NCHD you will automatically become a member of IEMTA.
- Medical students are entitled to join as affiliates which is free currently.
- Trainees are entitled to join as associates and get a reduced rate for attending the annual scientific meeting.
Attached is the IAEM membership pack.
Congratulations to all our members who have been selected to present their research at the IAEM 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting.
Best of luck to the presenters, many of whom are IEMTA members, giving oral presentations on Friday. Their abstracts are now available on-line as a supplement in the Irish Journal of Medical Science. Click here to access the abstracts.
IEMTA will be hosting a social evening this Thursday (16th October) after the Code Black Film which concludes day one of the IAEM 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting.
The event will be in Whiskey Fair on Dun Laoghaire Main Street (WhiskeyFair.ie).
There is no entry cost for this event and finger food will be served, so we expect to see you all there! We need to get numbers for catering so please let us know if you plan to attend.
IEMTA’s AGM will be held on Friday (17th October) in the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire. It will take place directly after the Leo Vella lecture, which closes the IAEM 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting.
