Advocacy Committee

Committee members staff three sub-committees, focusing on patient advocacy, resident advocacy and political advocacy both at the state and national levels. Your activities include developing policy statements, outreaching to AAEM/RSA members about critical issues in emergency medicine, and collaborating with the AAEM Government Affairs Committee.

Diversity & Inclusion Committee

Committee members will work with the AAEM Diversity and Inclusion Committee to plan and execute the Resident and Student Track at the annual ACMT meeting, outreach to underserved medical schools, and create resources for minority residents and students in emergency medicine.

Education Committee

Committee members plan and organize the resident educational track at the AAEM Scientific Assembly, which will be held March 9-13, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV. You will also assist with the medical student symposia that occur around the country.

International Committee

The International Committee will have the opportunity to contribute to international medicine projects and resource development that are helpful and beneficial to students and residents.

Publications & Social Media Committee

The Publications & Social Media Committee will concentrate efforts from the previous Communications and Publications committees. Members will contribute to the development and content of RSA's four primary media outlets: the RSA Blog Modern Resident, the AAEM/RSA website, Facebook and Twitter. The committee also oversees development and revisions of AAEM/RSA's multiple publications including clinical handbooks and board review materials. You will have numerous opportunities to edit, publish, and act as peer-reviewers, as well as work from the ground-up in developing AAEM/RSA's expansion to electronic publications.

Wellness Committee

Committee members will focus on resident and student wellness initiatives including taking on new initiatives like creating a wellness curriculum and identifying the unwell resident and/or student. Committee members will act as liaisons to the AAEM Wellness Committee in helping to plan activities for the annual Scientific Assembly that enhance their vision of making Scientific Assembly a rejuvenating wellness experience for EM physicians, residents, and students.
