Sex and Gender in EM Interest Group

The mission of the SGEM Interest Group is to raise consciousness within the field of emergency medicine on the importance patient sex and gender have on the delivery of emergency care and to assist in the integration of sex and gender concepts into emergency medicine education and research.

Objectives include:

 

  • Promote research collaborations amongst members to further determine the impact of sex differences in emergency care
  • Establish a speaker consortium whereby members can be identified as experts for sex and gender differences within a specific subspecialty area
  • Present 1-2 didactics annually at SAEM conferences
  • Provide mentorship opportunities for students, residents and colleagues in understanding the impact sex and gender have on the quality of care delivered in an acute care setting
  • Submit SGEM updates and reports to the SAEM newsletter that assist in educating SAEM members on the importance of patient sex and gender on emergency care
  • Develop collaborations for funding mechanisms that enable opportunities for members to obtain a research grant designed to explore sex differences in acute care
