Emergency medicine is a relatively new medical specialty, and has
gained popularity in the last decade for both its irreplaceable role in the
healthcare system, as well as the numerous social, legal, and administrative
developments that have emerged as a result of the field’s exponential
growth.1 Emergency medicine is defined by the American College of
Emergency Physicians (“ACEP”) as “the medical specialty dedicated to the
diagnosis and treatment of unforeseen illness or injury.”
