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.

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