Small Group Resources

We are all in this together. For some members of small groups, you may want a community where you can share your challenges, your victories, your best practices. We are here for you! 

ACEP has an online network for you to connect with other small group members, features in ACEP publications and podcasts, and coming soon, crowd-sourced curation of vendors.

If you think you’d be a good candidate to serve on the Small Group Advisory Group, or participate in our small group resource effort in other ways, please fill out this form
