Although the U.S. population continues to become more diverse, ethnic and racial healthcare disparities persist. The benefits of a diverse medical workforce have been well described, but the percentage of emergency medicine (EM) residents from underrepresented groups (URGs) is small and has not significantly increased. ADIEM will partner in a more powerful way with SAEM, working towards the realization of our common goals of diversifying the physician workforce at all levels, eliminating disparities in healthcare and outcomes, and insuring that all emergency physicians are delivering culturally competent care.
ADIEM's mission is more important than ever - to promote equal access to quality healthcare and the elimination of disparities in treatment. Please consider a leadership role.
