Consultation Services

Members of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine possess expertise in teaching, research and other aspects of academic emergency medicine practice. The Society is often called upon to provide individuals, departments or institutions with consultations aimed at developing, evaluating or improving various services, which it does through its committees and academies, or in consultation with the Association of Academic Chairs in Emergency Medicine (AACEM).

The chair of the 2013-2014 SAEM Consultation Services Committee is Terry Kowalenko, MD.
