President's Message

It has been quite a few days for the Chapter. On Saturday, April 16th, Ohio ACEP co-sponsored a Medical Student Symposium with EMRA for the second year in a row. We had over 100 medical students from as far away as Texas and Missouri attend lectures on getting into residency and participate in skill workshops. And a couple days later, Ohio ACEP held its Emergency Medicine Leadership Forum, an awesome two days of advocacy, education, and leadership on Capitol Square in Columbus. [Read more]

EMRA, Ohio ACEP Host Med Student Symposium

On April 16 in Columbus, Ohio ACEP teamed up with EMRA to offer medical students a unique opportunity to explore the fastest-paced and most exciting specialty in the house of medicine. More than 100 medical students and residency faculty from all over the country gathered for dynamic sessions on choosing a residency, rocking the residency interview, an ultrasound skills lab, and a residency fair.

Thanks to all the amazing medical students who turned out for the Midwest Regional Med Student Symposium—we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! And a special thanks to our faculty, residency directors, event exhibitors, and EMRA for making this event possible. And a special thanks to SonoSite, MedFlight, and Karl Storz.
