Dr. Michael Parsa is an emergency medicine physician and professor at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in El Paso. A graduate of Creighton University School of Medicine, Dr. Michael Parsa possesses more than 16 years of medical experience both in the United States, through his work in California as well as El Paso, and abroad. Dr. Parsa is a member of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM).
In addition to hosting annual conferences and a variety of educational programs, the AAEM manages the AAEM Resident and Student Association, for individuals just beginning their medical careers. Students receive their first year of membership for free.
Much like their more established peers, student members of AAEM have access to various benefits designed to help them map out their academic experiences and future careers. Once students begin their paid membership to the AAEM Resident and Student Association, they receive a pair of useful print resources: the Emergency Medicine Survival Guide and Rules of the Road for Medical Students. Members also are subscribed to the organization’s peer-reviewed blog and Common Sense magazine.
A number of electronic resources are available to student members, including an educational podcast, subscription to the Journal of Emergency Medicine and discounts on a test preparation website. Members also receive entrance to the AAEM annual scientific assembly.
