  • URGENT NOTICE: The Global Emergency Medicine Fellowship Consortium (GEMFTC), sponsor  of the NRMP Fellowship Match for Global Emergency Medicine, has decided to delay their first year of Match participation until the 2021 Emergency Medicine Match. Some programs in the specialty are experiencing internal administrative hurdles prohibiting them from joining the Match this year. To have maximum participation and ensure that the process is fair for applicants and programs, the consortium has made the difficult decision to delay Match participation to next year. Please contact GEMFC for further information about their decision.

Global Emergency Medicine (GEM) is a discipline that evaluates current standards and development of Emergency  Medicine (EM) in various countries throughout the world. GEM generally refers to the transfer of skills and knowledge from developed EM systems to those systems which are less developed-including knowledge of ambulance operations. In most developing countries, steps are being taken to develop EM as a specialty, to develop accreditation mechanisms, and to promote the development of EM training programs. Additional information can be found through the Global Emergency Medicine Consortium at http://www.iemfellowships.com/.

    • Applicants must have completed an Emergency Medicine residency and have Board eligibility or certification in Emergency Medicine via ABEM.
    • GEM fellowships are 1-2 years in length.

Application Process

The NRMP is not a centralized application service.  Candidates are responsible for determining whether the specialty participates in a standardized application service such as the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) or whether they must apply directly to the programs of their choice.  Applicants must ensure they meet all program prerequisites and institutional policies regarding eligibility for appointment prior to ranking a program through the NRMP.
