Operations Management Section

Operations Management  Section Logo

The Operations Management Section (OMS-AAEM) is constituted to promote, mentor, educate on and advocate for issues that impact emergency physicians serving in administrative and operational roles. While it is an obvious choice for current administrative fellows, medical directors of all levels and vice-chairs and chairs focusing on operational topics, it is also meant to serve as a forum for mentorship and education for students, residents, and physicians aspiring to such roles. Indeed, all emergency medicine practitioners passionate about healthcare operations and management, leadership and quality/patient safety are welcome to join and participate. The section will work closely with the AAEM Resident and Student Association (AAEM/RSA) to provide mentorship to medical students and residents who are interested in emergency medicine administration and operations.

ED Operations Certificate Course (EDOCC)

The ED Operations Certificate Course (EDOCC) is not about the latest fad in patient flow or cookie cutter solutions. It is about understanding the fundamental concepts and principles that are germane to EM systems of care, and applying that understanding to develop focused and sustainable solutions in your own ED.
