Full Voting members meeting the below requirements who wish to change their membership category must specifically request transfer to Emeritus status. Emeritus members may continue using the FAAEM designation as long as they meet the criteria of a Full Voting member of AAEM.

Special circumstances such as disability or full retirement from the practice of emergency medicine, may lead to a request for Emeritus membership. A member would be required to have been a Full Voting member in good standing for a period of at least five consecutive years to be considered for this special Emeritus status. Such a request will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the membership committee. Eligibility for this special status shall lapse upon the Emeritus member’s return to the active practice of emergency medicine or upon change in the circumstances qualifying the member for Emeritus status. The Emeritus member shall have an affirmative obligation to notify the Academy of any such change in status.
