The practice analysis relied upon both empirical data and the advice of several expert panels and resulted in The Model of the Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine (EM Model). The EM Model resulted from the need for a more integrated and representative presentation of the Core Content of Emergency Medicine. It was created through the collaboration of six organizations:

  • American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM)
  • American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP)
  • Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors (CORD)
  • Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association (EMRA)
  • Residency Review Committee for Emergency Medicine (RRC-EM)
  • Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM)

Note: ABEM is currently using the 2013 version of the EM Model to develop examinations. ABEM will use the 2016 version of the EM Model to develop examinations beginning with the fall 2019 examinations.
