AAEM/RSA Track - Residency to the Real World: The Missing Curriculum

The AAEM20 RSA Track – Residency to the Real World: The Missing Curriculum focuses on topics not typically covered in residency.

RSA would like to thank Carey D. Chisholm, MD FAAEM and the late Kevin Rodgers, MD MAAEM FAAEM for creating the concept of the track. Dr. Rodgers' support and collaboration in the development of the track with RSA leadership was invaluable. The goal of the track is to prepare residents for their careers in emergency medicine by concentrating on topics such as interviewing, contract negotiation, health policy, ways to prevent burnout, and more.

NEW: Resident Breve Dulce Competition

AAEM/RSA is excited to bring resident members a new Breve Dulce competition! The theme of this competition is “Hindsight is 20/20.” Please submit an experience from your emergency medicine training, clinical or otherwise, where you learned an important lesson that is much clearer now than it was in the past.

Eight resident speakers will be selected to present at AAEM20 in Phoenix, AZ, between 4:20pm-5:40pm on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 during the AAEM/RSA Track. Winning submissions will be notified of their acceptance and speaking time by February 14, 2020. Competition judging will take place in real-time by a panel of peer and faculty judges, and the top 3 winners will receive a cash prize.
