Observational Medicine Interest Group

Academic emergency physicians in the Observational Medicine Interest Group have an opportunity to collaborate in the area of observation medicine, which is dedicated to continued care in the treatment or diagnostic evaluation of specific conditions seen in the emergency department to determine if inpatient admission is required.

The objectives of the Observational Medicine Interest Group are to:

  • Create a network of individuals and institutions to develop and collaborate on multicenter research relevant to observation medicine
  • Continue to evaluate and refine published Observation Medicine resident curriculum
  • Develop a model curriculum for an observation medicine fellowship, and providing opportunities to benchmark best practices
  • Create didactic programs that reinforce the fundamentals and further the understanding of observational medicine within the emergency medicine community
  • Support academic emergency departments in the design and operation of new observation units via a collaborative consultation service
  • Support the development of tools and educational products that further the goals and understanding of observation medicine among other medical services and medical administrations
