Your Medical-Legal Questions Answered 

As an emergency physician and academician, you teach evolving ethical and legal issues every day. The ACEP Code of Ethics and the Expert Witness Review Board , which examines questionable testimony in liability cases, are just two of the great resources you can turn to to meet your teaching needs. In addition, your students and residents need to know that ACEP provides help to those who are facing legal issues. Peer-to-peer counseling is available exclusively for members facing liability issues.

"Getting Sued: A Resident's Perspective" is an online litigation guide and a primer. These exclusive member benefits are invaluable resources in today's litigious environment. Find more information in our Practice Resources online under Medical-Legal or Ethics.   

Share Your Experiences with Other Faculty  

Do you have a great teaching technique? A great idea that works with medical students? A resident bedside teaching idea that ensures your residents understand the principles of emergency medicine?   Then share it with other junior faculty members. Send your topic idea to Buck Beighley, and we'll work with you to find a good time for you to present an ACEP Free Webinar.
