Academic medical centers often serve as the safety net for the community and smaller hospitals by providing sub-specialty care not available elsewhere and serving as the resource for training and education of providers in the region. Funding for education and training of an adequate workforce will allow academic centers to address a workforce deficit in emergency medicine trained providers and educate more physicians on emergency care during medical school years.

The IOM report on emergency medical services describes a fragmented system with disparate care delivery. EMS is a critical early link in emergency preparedness for disasters. Substantial research efforts are needed to provide a stronger scientific basis for out-of-hospital emergency care, with a focus on systems, care protocols and maintaining competencies.
