Academic Departments of Emergency Medicine in Medical Schools

Reaffirmed by the ACEP Board of Directors April 2011 and September 2005 

Originally approved as Board Motion BM 005 November 1974; approved as a policy statement March 1999


ACEP believes each medical school should include an academic department of emergency medicine that will be responsible for educational programs in emergency medicine and that will be free-standing and equal in status to the other specialties of medicine.
