Candidate statements are listed in alphabetical order.

Amy Cutright, MD
University of Nebraska

A CutrightI completed medical school at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL and residency training at Vidant Medical Center (formerly Pitt County Memorial Hospital) in Greenville, NC. Following residency I moved to Omaha, Nebraska and have served as Assistant Professor and Clerkship Director at the University of Nebraska for the past 6 years. In addition to clerkship duties I also teach physical exam, ultrasound and emergency medicine to both preclinical and clinical medical students. I also offer mentoring and advising to both University of Nebraska and Creighton Medical School EM interest groups and EM bound students.

CDEM and SAEM have been key resources for mentorship and professional development in my career as an educator. I am excited for the opportunity to become more involved in support of CDEM. While I am new to leadership roles within the Academy, I hope to contribute my years of clerkship director experience to help understand the evolving needs of the CDEM membership. If elected I plan to devote my time, energy and enthusiasm in support of the CDEM Academy and continue the development of the many resources and services offered to its members.
