I have never heard this and we did supervise EM residents where I did my fellowship. Is this new? And what's the possible justification to say that a 2nd or 3rd year fellow is not qualified to supervise an EM resident?
I know that General Peds attendings who are not PEM trained are not allowed to supervise EM residents.

The RRC rules apparently prohibit peds-trained PEM fellows from supervising emergency medicine residents. Has anybody found a way to work around this?
