Use your experience to help the next generation of physicians! The purpose of the Resident Student Advisory Committee (RSAC) is to broaden and concentrate on career advancement, e.g., moving from resident to chief resident to young physician; transitioning the chasm between medical school graduation and matriculation to a resident physician; working the system for committee involvement on the local, national, state and national basis, and learning the ropes of being a successful emergency physician.
ACOEP Board Liaison: Jennifer Axelband, DO FACOEP
The ACOEP Women’s Committee was designed to provide a support network that cultivates leadership and resources, to develop policies to represent the female emergency medicine physician and to deliver information pertinent to women in medicine, gender disparities, pay/contractual differential, leadership opportunities, sexual harassment, being a working parent, work life balance, as well as any other topics pertinent to the female physician. The focus of the Committee is on addressing the unique needs of these women physicians, policy development to represent this subset of physicians and encouragement of female leadership within the College, thereby building loyalty to it.
Committee Chair: Nicole Ottens, DO, FACOEP
