President's Message

This past weekend, I had the pleasure to represent Ohio ACEP at the EMRA Mid-West Regional Medical Student Symposium. Nearly 80 students were registered for the symposium which included a panel discussion on how to succeed in their quest to become Emergency Medicine residents. Nine residencies from Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky participated in the Residency Fair for students. Students were able to practice airway and ultrasound skills in procedure labs.  

It was however, the final event with the medical students, the viewing of the Emmy Award-winning EMRA documentary, 24|7|365, which left the most meaningful impression on me. [Read more]
