Abstract

The specialty of emergency medicine has emerged as a separate academic department within medical schools. These academic departments were contacted and asked to submit information on the process they undertook to attain department status. The path taken by each department was unique and dependent on many factors. Information about these departments is summarized, and ten broad recommendations for academic emergency physicians to consider when seeking department status are given.
