AAEM/RSA Statement of Concern for Graduating EM Residents and the Current Job Market | AAEM Resident and Student Association
The American Academy of Emergency Medicine Resident and Student Association (AAEM/RSA) is a non-profit professional association for emergency medicine residents and medical students.

Shout-out to the AAEM Resident and Student Association for calling attention to the very important issue of "the inappropriate overuse of NPs and PAs practicing beyond their training in roles that should be filled by highly trained board certified emergency physicians." With some estimating that as many as 1 in 4 new graduates from Emergency Medicine residency programs, the infiltration of Emergency Medicine by midlevel nurse practitioners and physician's assistants will remain a huge issue for the foreseeable issue.
