Nova Law Review


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.”
