The Regional Faculties represent each jurisdiction by focusing on local issues and raising awareness of emergency medicine on behalf of their communities. All Fellows are automatically a member of the Faculty of the state, territory or country (for New Zealand Fellows) that they are working in.
What do Regional Faculties do?
Regional Faculties provide a mechanism for FACEMs to have a voice on advocacy issues, linking local issues to nationally significant issues ACEM has an active interest in. Faculties also provide a useful mechanism for networking and opportunities to get involved in College initiatives, including coordinating events and meetings.
Faculties are made up of a Faculty Board, which meets regularly, as well as holding regular meetings for all Fellows in the state, territory or country. Issues discussed vary based on the region but, often cover major College policy priorities, such as Access Block, Patient flow, Ambulance ramping, resourcing and hospital system reform.
