American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) Continuing Medical Education Mission Statement
- The American Academy of Emergency Medicine's CME Program will offer educational activities that stimulate, maintain, develop and enhance the study and practice of emergency medicine.
- The 2011 Model of the Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine primarily dictates the content of AAEM's CME program. The American Board of Emergency Medicine and the American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine endorse and utilize this document as the basis for post-graduate continuous certification and training in emergency medicine. The core competencies of medicine: professionalism, communication, and interpersonal skills, practice-based learning and improvement, knowledge acquisition, the business of EM, patient care and systems-based practice, also serve as a basis for AAEM's CME content.
- The target audience for AAEM's CME Program includes, but is not limited to, residency trained or board-certified (ABEM / AOBEM) physicians who are engaged in the practice of emergency medicine.
- Activities included as part of AAEM's CME Program are a national Annual Scientific Assembly, Oral and Written Board Review courses, lectures and workshops that support and enhance the medical core competencies of physicians engaged in the practice of emergency medicine. These educational activities will appeal to the professional interests of a specialist in emergency medicine and will only include educational activities that enable physicians to successfully meet their professional responsibilities. AAEM's primary concern is activities that support the personal and professional welfare of the individual specialist in emergency medicine. AAEM continues to support the concept of jointly sponsored activities with organizations whose goals are compatible with AAEM's Mission Statement.
- AAEM's CME Programs will enhance the maintenance of current knowledge and enable the participating physician to address knowledge, competency and gaps in practice by acquiring and implementing new evidence-based or ideal practice skills.
