Interest Groups

Interest Groups are established by the president and/or Executive Committee as a group of AAEM members who have a common interest that impacts both the Academy and emergency medicine as a specialty not covered by either a committee or task force.

Aging Well in Emergency Medicine Interest Group

The AAEM Aging Well in Emergency Medicine Interest Group (AWEMIG) was founded to address issues and concerns for our community of experienced emergency medicine trained and board certified physicians as they enter the more senior phase of their career. As our specialty matures, there are a growing number of mature emergency medicine physicians. The AWEMIG would provide a forum for issues specific to this cohort of AAEM members. There is no age limit for AAEM AWEMIG members, as the issues may be relevant to different individuals at slightly different ages depending on the track of their career and lives.
