Programs are invited to notify SAEM of any unexpected vacancies or positions created due to program expansion, etc., and SAEM will post your listing on its website. Prospective EM residents may review these listings and contact the residency programs directly.

If you would like a Residency Vacancy listed or if information needs to be updated, please email SAEM at
