Joint Statement on the EM 2023 Match Results

The 2022 EM Match saw an unprecedented initial 219 unmatched positions affecting one in four residency programs. The 2023 Match will see 555 initially unmatched positions, affecting a larger number of residency programs. Although these are challenging results, EM remains a vibrant and appealing specialty for many with almost 2500 new trainees already joining the EM family.

Session 55: “Wellbeing of Learners and Colleagues” is one of the Clinician Educators Milestones. How is this good for MY wellbeing as a PD?

Monday, February 27, 2023 | 5 PM ET
Host: Pamela Dyne, MD

Join Dr. Pamela Dyne as she speaks about the Clinician Educators Milestones that were released in 2022 as a collaborative effort by the ACGME, AAMC, AMA, and AACOM, and one of these milestones is “Wellbeing: Wellbeing of Learners and Colleagues.” The irony of the added stress of this responsibility falling on residency program leadership is not lost on any of us! Dr. Dyne will discuss what physician wellbeing and burnout actually are (and are not!), and what residency program leaders can do to support their own wellbeing and that of their learners and colleagues, and by extension, mitigate their own burnout and promote engagement in their residents and colleagues.

The EM Applicant Preference/Program Signaling Guide is now Available!

The EM Applicant/Advisor Supplemental Guide to Preference/Program Signaling (PS) is now available on the CORD website! This guide is meant to serve as a complement to (not a substitute for) the AAMC Supplemental ERAS Application Guide. We recommend reading the AAMC guide first to review the mechanics on how to submit signals via the ERAS Supplemental Application.

Tokens! A Quick Guide to EM Preference Signaling

Knowing our audience of advisors well, we here at ASC-EM won’t bother hunting for citations to adorn this sentence: We are all suffering from burnout of historic proportions.  Whatever one’s politics, beliefs, position and physical capacity, the last two and a half years have been hard in a way that might (if one were prone to such thoughts) seem almost specifically targeted to make life difficult for ER doctors and educators.

Survey Says…

The 2020-21 match season delivered an unprecedented level of uncertainty to students and the faculty advising them. As members of the CORD Advising Students Committee in Emergency Medicine (ASC-EM), we developed and sent out a small survey on the recently finished 2020-2021 advising season.  We are still processing the data, but thought it was important to share some preliminary findings, as the 2021/22 advising season has already begun, and we will all be forced—again—to advise in the face of uncertainty.
