General Information

ACOEP hosts two annual meetings, Scientific Assembly which takes place in the fall, and Spring Seminar. These conferences are a great opportunity for students to take advantage of everything that ACOEP has to offer. The ACOEP-SC plays a big part in each conference, hosting hands-on workshops, and a dedicated lecture track. At ACOEP’s Spring Seminar, ACOEP-SC offers a residency director panel, Leadership Academy, and the opportunity to network with experienced professionals in the field. In the fall, the ACOEP Student Chapter Residency Fair is a great way to meet with representatives from residency programs from across the country.


How do I register for conference?
Register online by clicking here. If you do not remember your user log in, or have questions on how to create one, contact Jaclyn McMillin at 312.445.5702.

Is there a conference registration fee?
ACOEP’s Spring Seminar and Scientific Assembly cost $25 each to attend. The Student Symposium have a registration fee of $30.

Is there a stipend for travel?
There is not an individual stipend for students, however each local chapter receives a $300 reimbursement per conference that they can use at each chapter’s discretion. EM Club presidents or representatives can see the Student Chapter Treasurer for a reimbursement form. Forms are also emailed to each club president one month prior to the conference.

I am traveling alone. Is there any way to find a roommate to split costs?
The ACOEP-SC does not arrange for roommates, however, many students have had luck posting on the Facebook page in the past. ACOEP also negotiates with the hotel for reduced nightly rates. See the dedicated conference page on this website for hotel information and rates.

Are there any major differences between the spring and fall conference?
Spring Seminar and Scientific Assembly both offer students hands-on labs, the opportunity to hear world-class speakers, and the chance to network with professionals in the field. There are, however, some key differences.

At Spring Seminar students can participate in the Leadership Academy, a special three-day track for students who want to learn leadership skills and experience. Students can also take advantage of a Program Director’s Panel, sit in on rapid-fire lectures, and participate in the FOEM Case Study Poster Competition. Students can also attend the conference’s EMS Track and are invited to attend events such as the popular Welcome Reception.

Scientific Assembly offers more didactic sessions, labs and lectures. However, students are also invited to attend the Student Chapter Residency Fair in which program directors and coordinators from across the country provide information about various residency programs. This is an excellent opportunity for students to discover what these programs have to offer and to find the best match for them.
