The American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) created the Dr. Leon L. Haley, Jr., Bridge to the Future of Emergency Medicine Academy to honor the legacy of Dr. Haley. This program is specifically designed to provide Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM) rising second-year medical students the opportunity to participate in an in-person, all-expenses-paid, two-week mentorship program at the ABEM headquarters in East Lansing, Michigan in June of each year. The 2023 class will meet June 5-16, 2023.

Selected students will join didactic lectures on topics such as reducing health care disparities, increasing diversity in physicians, and applying to residency programs. The students will connect with thought leaders in URiM and be expected to complete a short portfolio project at the end of this experience. In addition, students will travel to two nearby Emergency Medicine residency programs (Central Michigan University and Henry Ford Health System) for hands-on simulation and educational experiences.

Applications accompanied by a current resume or CV and a Dean's letter should be submitted no later than February 24, 2023. There will be a brief virtual interview required prior to selection of the final 5-10 participating students.
