ADIEM: Academy for Diversity & Inclusion in Emergency Medicine

Why ADIEM is Important


Although the U.S. population continues to become more diverse, ethnic and racial healthcare disparities persist. The benefits of a diverse medical workforce have been well described, but the percentage of emergency medicine (EM) residents from underrepresented groups (URGs) is small and has not significantly increased. ADIEM will partner in a more powerful way with SAEM, working towards the realization of our common goals of diversifying the physician workforce at all levels, eliminating disparities in healthcare and outcomes, and insuring that all emergency physicians are delivering culturally competent care.


Mission

  • To promote equal access to quality healthcare and the elimination of disparities in treatment and outcomes through education and research

  • To enhance the retention and promotion of those historically under-represented in medicine and to create an inclusive environment for the training of emergency medicine providers; specifically using the AAMC’s guide “to unite expertise, experience and innovation to inform and guide the advancement of diversity and inclusion in emergency medicine”

  • To enhance the professional development of all EM faculty and residents with respect to culturally competent medical care

Objectives

  • Enhance the recruitment of under-represented groups to the field of Emergency Medicine

  • Enhance the retention of URMs in Emergency Medicine residencies and as academic faculty

  • Enhance academic promotion of URM faculty in Emergency Medicine

  • Enhance the professional development of all EM faculty with respect to culturally competent medical care

  • Promote the concepts of equal access to care and equal quality of care for all patients

  • Minimize racial, ethnic and gender outcome disparities in health care
