The International Emergency Medical Response Agency (herein referred to as “I.E.M.R.A.”) is a privately owned company based in New York. I.E.M.R.A. is not affiliated with, endorsed or sanctioned by any law enforcement or government agency (local, state, federal, foreign or international). The goal of the I.E.M.R.A. is to provide licensed healthcare professionals (herein referred to as “Members” and/or “Applicants”) the opportunity to become I.E.M.R.A. members. Upon completion of membership requirements set forth on the membership page, members are provided with, and are encouraged to utilize, the educational resources provided by I.E.M.R.A. and any third-parties they deem appropriate, after conducting their own due diligence. There are proprietary courses, activities, events as well as information and educational links to external sources for members to use to meet the I.E.M.R.A. goal of providing all patients with knowledgeable, healthy, prepared medical care professionals. 

     I.E.M.R.A. conducts background searches on all membership applicants to confirm that their professional license is legitimate, active and in good standing. I.E.M.R.A. does not share any information regarding applicants or members with any third parties other than that which allows I.E.M.R.A. to conduct the checks and searches required to confirm the identity and status of all members. 

    I.E.M.R.A. requires that prospective members complete a membership application via email by sending complete information to membership@iemra.com and pass the requirements of the entrance background check, as set forth in these terms and conditions. To wit, passing the background check means that the information given is true and correct, the applicant is a licensed health provider in good standing -- without a criminal history or having had a professional license revoked. For retired or non-practicing members, scholars and student members, a felonious criminal history is a potential prohibition to membership. All information provided in the application process must be true and accurate and will be confirmed. If an applicant has a criminal past that concerns them, please add a personal statement regarding the matter and why you are a now a good applicant for membership. We understand that life happens, everyone deserves a second chance, however, IEMRA aims to create a safe space for health professionals to exchange current evidence-based professional information and to enjoy work, wellness, learning and leisure opportunities, activities and events. 

    Accepted IEMRA members are expected to contribute to the IEMRA community by completing educational and training offerings, engaging in professional dialogue through chats and discussions, submitting content appropriate to health professionals to IEMRA (articles, images, videos, courses, activities, events, speaking topics, suggestions for IEMRA created content) membership requirements. Applicants are also required to submit copies of their professional and driver’s licenses as well as their Curriculum Vitae and passport photographs; these are the sources of information that I.E.M.R.A. will use to conduct any and all background searches and as proof of identity. 

     Potential members and applicants are strongly advised to confirm that they meet the requirements for I.E.M.R.A. membership, prior to submitting any membership application materials or related fees.
