Becoming a Fellow of the European Society for Emergency Medicine (FESEM)
In 2010, a new category of membership of the European Society for Emergency Medicine was introduced, namely ‘Fellowship of the European Society for Emergency Medicine’. This new category of ‘Fellowship’ is in keeping with the practice of other medical Colleges and Societies worldwide and is intended to recognise those long standing members of EUSEM who have made substantial contributions of distinction to the Society and to the community of European Emergency Medicine.
Prospective Fellows will be entitled to apply for election after no less than five (5) years of continuous Membership or International Membership (as appropriate). Candidates for Fellowship will be expected to demonstrate their substantial contributions to European emergency medicine (such activities may include national EM development in Europe; development of teaching or research in their country or Europe-wide; significant contributions to European EM work such as curriculum development; or significant and sustained contributions to the European Journal of Emergency Medicine).
All applications for Fellowship will be assessed by the Fellowship Committee. Applicants who are not successful in their application will be permitted to re-apply not less than two years after their previous application.
Fellows will be entitled to use the post nominal letters ‘FESEM’ as a mark of their significant achievements and services to European Emergency Medicine. New Fellows shall receive a Certificate of Fellowship of EUSEM signed by the President and Secretary of EUSEM at the following Annual General Meeting.
Applicants who are successfully elected to the Fellowship will be expected to continue to pay their appropriate annual subscription.
Honorary Fellowship of the European Society for Emergency Medicine (Hon FESEM)
In 2010, a new category of membership of the European Society for Emergency Medicine was introduced, namely ‘Fellowship of the European Society for Emergency Medicine’. In line with this, the current category of ‘Honorary Membership’ will be replaced with the category of ‘Honorary Fellowship of the European Society for Emergency Medicine’ in keeping with the practice of other medical Colleges and Societies worldwide.
Honorary Fellows will not be expected to maintain their annual subscriptions. They will be entitled to use the post nominal letters ‘Hon FESEM’ as a mark of their high achievement and outstanding services to European Emergency Medicine. New Honorary Fellows shall receive a Certificate of Honorary Fellowship of EUSEM signed by the President and Secretary of EUSEM at the following Annual General Meeting.
Honorary Fellows are usually nominated by the Council on recommendation from the Executive Committee and are elected by the membership at an Annual General Meeting of the Society.
