Ways to get involved

  • We post a monthly story, “In All My Career...Stories from the ED” on the ACEP blog, The Central Line (first Tuesday of each month). Sometimes humorous, sometimes heartwarming, the stories always demonstrate the understated value the ED plays in the lives of each member of our communities. 
  • Our section recognizes longevity in the practice of emergency medicine with the yearly Longevity and Tenure Awards. W
  • We also have an online forum that pairs seasoned mentors with physicians who are early in their careers to answer questions and give advice.
