Hot off the Press! Don’t miss this enlightening study on gender distribution among American medical specialty leaders. Read how EM fared when researchers evaluated the relative representation of women on ABMS boards and compared it with the gender composition of the 25 respective specialties studied. Spoiler alert:29% of current American Board of Emergency Medicine directors are women, while 27% of EM physicians and 37.4% of EM physicians-in-training are female.
Also, please stay tuned for more information on the important work being done by ACEP’s Diversity and Inclusion Taskforce. Initiated by President Rebecca Parker, the group is focused on examining the EM landscape to identify barriers to improving diversity on all levels.
