President's Message

Happy New Year! We're two weeks into 2016 but I figured it was okay to say it one last time.

ACEP’s first EM Wellness Week, January 24-30. I think we all roll our eyes whenever we hear about "wellness;" goodness knows my residents do. But the fact is no other specialty deals with the social disasters and time away from family while being constantly sleep deprived like we do. [Read more]
