Friday, March 29, 2013
Mike Takacs, MD, FAAEM, FACEP has been appointed to the Clerkship
Directors in Emergency Medicine (CDEM) Awards Committee. The Society for
Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) created the CDEM in 2008 as its
first ‘Academy’. Academies within SAEM aim to provide forums for SAEM
members to collaborate and exchange information. Specifically, the CDEM
provides an opportunity for emergency medicine clerkship directors and
medical student educators to join forces, collaborate and develop a
unified voice at a national level.
Designed to recognize outstanding contributions by members, four
prestigious CDEM awards are given out each year. As a member of the CDEM
Award Committee, Takacs will take part in selecting which nominees to
award the Clerkship Director of the Year Award, Young Educator of the
Year Award, Distinguished Educator Award and Award for Innovation in
Medical Education, respectively.
