Resident & Fellow Council

Members of the Resident & Fellow Council receive all of the benefits of being a Young Ambassador, as well as mentorship from AANEM board members and other leading physicians. Resident & Fellow Council members also receive a 50% discount on select AANEM education products, a $1,000 travel stipend for the in-person AANEM Annual Meeting, and free participation in a future Emerging Leaders Forum.

Residents and fellows studying in a postgraduate program are invited to apply for the AANEM Resident & Fellow Council membership. Council members serve a 2-year term and are selected through an application process. There are a limited number of available positions on the council and all positions are currently filled.

When there is an opening on the council, you will be able to start your application from this page. You will be asked to submit the following items:
  • Resident & Fellow Council application
  • Personal statement of interest in joining the council
  • Copy of your curriculum vitae
  • Letter of recommendation from your Training Program Director or other AANEM member
Additionally, two members of the Resident & Fellow Council will be selected as Leadership Liaisons. They will co-chair the council and participate in AANEM board of director meetings. Leadership Liaisons receive waived in-person meeting registration, airfare, and 5-6 nights hotel accommodations to attend the annual meeting. Leadership Liaisons serve a 1-year term and are selected annually from members of the Resident & Fellow Council.
