ACUTE CARE, INC. supports the mission, vision and values of the the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM).

SAEM was formed in 1989 from the amalgamation of the University Association for Emergency Medicine (UAEM) and the Society of Teachers of Emergency Medicine (STEM).

As the premier organization for high-quality research and educational innovation in emergency care, the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) creates and promotes scientific discovery, advancement of education, and the highest professional and ethical standards for clinicians, educators, and researchers.

SAEM is dedicated to the improvement of care of the acutely ill and injured patient by improving research and education. To achieve this mission, SAEM influences health policy through forums, publications, interorganizational collaboration, policy development, and consultation services for physicians, teachers, researchers, and students. SAEM represents excellence and leadership in academic emergency medicine, and its values include idealism and quality in all endeavors, nurturing and camaraderie and diversity among members, as well as creative and symbiotic interactions with other organizations.

SAEM provides administrative support to the Association of Academic Chairs of Emergency Medicine (AACEM) and to the SAEM journals, Academic Emergency Medicine (AEM) and Academic Emergency Medicine Education and Training (AEM E&T).
