These guidelines address the growing demand for extended and standardized training of physician assistants in emergency medicine entering into the marketplace. Additionally, the model of the MD-PA team in delivering care remains a highly effective tool in responding to the need for ever-increasing emergency medicine care. As such, the future will require closer collaboration, partnership and innovation by all involved to meet the ever-evolving challenges within emergency medicine.
SEMPA’s goal in developing an EMPA postgraduate educational standard is to create a consistent and expected outcome for those employing the individuals who complete these programs. SEMPA’s definitive desired outcome is to shape an educational process that demands, promotes, and results in EMPA’s offering the exceptional level of care that their patients deserve. SEMPA strongly encourages physician groups, hospitals and educational institutions to adopt training and educational opportunities to prepare physician assistants seeking to practice emergency medicine.
