President's Message

Chicago, Chicago, that toddling town…Here we come. ACEP’s increasingly influential Scientific Assembly (ACEP14) returns to the shores of Lake Michigan the last week of October. A great venue for ACEP’s annual assembly, the city boasts wonderful eateries, top notch hotels, a variety of entertainment events (on a visit to the Windy City for a previous Scientific Assembly, I attended a Chicago Bears game in the afternoon, a Chicago Blackhawks game that evening, and had the opportunity to attend a Chicago Bulls game the following evening…I passed), and an assembly hall that can easily and comfortably accommodate this gathering.

As has been the case since the early days of the College, ACEP14 is immediately preceded by the ACEP Council meeting. [Read more]

My First Ohio ACEP Board Meeting
By Tyler Hill, DO; Resident Rep to the Ohio ACEP Board

On October 7th, 2014 I attended my first Ohio ACEP Board of Directors meeting. Arriving half an hour early, I was greeted by warm, smiling faces and friendly handshakes. Immediately, I felt accepted into the Ohio ACEP family and was on the “team.” Then, at 10:01 AM the gavel slammed against the sound block. As the topics of discussion varied, passions flared and territories were protected. [Read more]
