Abstract

As a result of months of meetings and deliberations coordinated with the Medical Board of California and chaperoned by the California Chapter of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (CAL/AAEM), the Society for Academic Medicine (SAEM), the Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors (CORD), and the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) recently reached a landmark agreement on recommendations to the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) pertaining to controversial May 1998 FSMB recommendations regarding physician licensure. Endorsed unanimously by the boards of all three emergency medicine (EM) organizations, the recommendations of this consensus have been forwarded to the FSMB and await its official response. The recommendations will also be forwarded to remaining EM organizations and to the medical community for comment and to enlist their support.
