WEM (Women in Emergency Medicine)

The Women in Emergency Medicine committee will provide support, mentorship and networking opportunities to women in emergency medicine with the goal of helping its members achieve their ideal balance in all areas of their lives.

Our goal is to empower women in emergency medicine through representation,  mentorship,  education and advocacy.

Find out more about women who are making a difference in Emergency Medicine. A series of interviews is being conducted.

We are celebrating some of the many women who have demonstrated leadership during the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
