President's Message

A few reminders before the real message of this month:
  1. Although we’re only a few weeks away, it’s not too late to register for National ACEP’s Leadership and Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C. on March 12-15.
  2. For those of you who work with medical students, please tell them about our Midwest Medical Student Symposium, April 1st in Toledo, OH. It’s an invaluable day for rising fourth year medical students considering entering EM as there will be a residency fair, Q&A panel discussion with program directors, and lectures on rocking your EM rotation and interviews.
  3. Finally, don’t forget to register for the Ohio ACEP Emergency Medicine Forum and Annual Meeting May 2 and 3 in Columbus, OH. We’re very excited about the program that’s coming together. Stay tuned for more in next month’s eNews.
And now to my real message… Last week the ACGME’s decision to remove the accreditation for the Summa EM program effective July 1 sent shockwaves through emergency medicine, both in Ohio and around the country. [Read more]
