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 focus on patient advocacy, resident advocacy and political advocacy both at the state and national levels. Your activities include developing policy statements, outreach to AAEM/RSA members about critical issues in emergency medicine, and collaborating with the AAEM Government and National Affairs Committee.

International Committee

Members of the International Committee encourage interests and initiatives that expand understanding of global emergency medicine. Members will serve as liaisons between AAEM/RSA and international EM societies while supporting the development of international emergency medicine interest groups. They will also develop and expand educational resources for international trainees and practitioners of emergency medicine.

Education Committee

Committee members plan and organize the resident educational track at the AAEM Scientific Assembly, which will be held April 23-27, 2022 in Baltimore, MA. You will also assist with the medical student symposia that occur across the country.

Membership & Awards Committee

The Membership & Awards Committee will focus specifically on the needs of membership by brainstorming recruitment and retention strategies. This committee will 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 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.
