Academy for Women in Academic Emergency Medicine (AWAEM)

The Academy for Women in Academic Emergency Medicine (AWAEM) was established in 2009 to promote the recruitment, retention, advancement and leadership of women in academic emergency medicine. The success of academic emergency medicine and the ability of the specialty to train future emergency physicians are intrinsically linked with the success of women faculty as they now represent half of the medical student body and almost half of physicians.
