Our committees are essential to carrying out the mission and vision of AAEM/RSA. Committee members are directly involved in projects: identifying new opportunities, guiding projects, getting hands-on, offering expertise, and making connections with fellow residents and students in the process.

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, outreach to underserved medical schools, and create resources for minority residents and students in emergency medicine.

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.

Education Committee

Committee members plan and organize the resident educational track at the AAEM Scientific Assembly, which will be held April 19-23, 2020 in Phoenix, AZ. You will also assist with the medical student symposia that occur around the country.

Membership & Awards Committee

The Membership & Awards Committee will focus specifically on the needs of membership by brainstorming recruitment and retainment strategies. This new committee would also be responsible for selecting award recipients for the current AAEM/RSA awards (Kevin G. Rodgers Program Director of the Year Award, Program Coordinator of the Year Award, Committee Member of the Year Award(s), and EMIG of the Year Award), and for recommending the creation of new awards to the board of directors as a means to recognize the ongoing work of AAEM/RSA member.

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.
