To be the voice of undergraduate medical education for emergency medicine.
The Clerkship Directors in Emergency Medicine (CDEM) is the national organization representing undergraduate medical education in emergency medicine. CDEM was formed in 2008 and became the first Academy of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM). CDEM is comprised of medical student educators who are committed to enhancing medical student education within our specialty.

Clerkship Directors BootcampMay 16, 2023 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (Central Daylight Time)There are many skills required of EM clerkship directors (CDs), such as developing a curriculum that covers learning objectives, training residents and faculty to reliably assess students, and providing sound career advice. CDs are also beholden to many stakeholders, including the medical school, the department, and students as learners and advisees. Additionally, as part of their role, CDs are responsible for maintaining and documenting compliance with accreditation standards, especially during Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) visits. This workshop will address vital skills for running a successful clerkship and how to navigate common pitfalls. (Sponsored by CDEM)
