The scholarship will be awarded to one EM Resident annually, who, like Matt, has a particular interest in wilderness medicine.   The fund is administered by the St. Luke’s Roosevelt Emergency Medicine Residency in NYC and The Wilderness Medical Society. Scholarship recipients will receive $1000.00 for travel expenses and accommodations to attend the National Wilderness Medical Society Annual Meeting.  Registration fee for the conference will be waived for the scholarship recipient.  The recipient will have the opportunity to deliver a 30 minute lecture at the national conference on a wilderness medicine topic.  This experience will be pivotal for residents hoping to begin a career in wilderness and/or Academic EM, and will provide access to mentorship by nationally recognized leaders and wilderness medicine faculty.
