Get involved in the College
ACEM values and welcomes the contribution of community representatives and medical students and offers opportunities to get involved with the College's important work.
Since officially gaining recognition as a principal specialty, emergency medicine (EM) has grown rapidly and is now integrated throughout the hospital system in Australia and New Zealand.
ACEM is governed by the principles outlined in our Constitution. The Constitution was adopted on 15 November 2009, replacing the former Memorandum and Articles of Association which were established at the College's inception in 1984. It was amended: 15 March 2011, 20 November 2011, November 2013 and November 2015.
As a membership based organisation our work is progressed by physicians and clinicians who volunteer their time, in partnership with stakeholders and professional staff employed at the College.
ACEM develops regular publications to keep stakeholders up to date with the College's activities and emergency medicine in Australia, New Zealand and internationally.
What is emergency medicine?
Emergency medicine is a medical specialty that equips physicians with the knowledge and skills required to care for patients with very urgent healthcare needs.
