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
ACOEP’s Committee for Women in Emergency Medicine was established in 2018 to provide a network and platform for the advancement of female physicians in emergency medicine. The committee provides a network of education, mentoring, and guidance in personal and professional leadership skills. The percentage of women going into careers in medicine, as well as emergency medicine is growing, however the number of women in senior leadership positions has not grown in proportion.
As a Committee within the College, we are here to educate members of both genders on the numerous challenges that women face including pay gaps, family leave policies, and gender bias that affect career progression. We hope to increase awareness on gender issues in medicine in general. By identifying and openly discussing the barriers to the advancement of women in emergency medicine, we can have open conversations with all the stake holders and develop strategies to address them.
