Meet the YPS Officer Candidates

We are pleased to introduce the current candidates for our open YPS leadership positions. We will also accept floor candidates on Saturday during our business meeting (see location and details above).

Chair Elect Candidate:
Hunter Pattison, MD | California

Throughout my medical career, I have had the opportunity to serve in a variety of roles that have provided me with a deeper understanding of the different facets of the healthcare world. Through these experiences, I have also seen firsthand the important role that the ACEP has in serving as a voice for emergency physicians and trainees across the nation.

I believe that my prior involvement within organized medicine will assist me in better serving the ACEP Young Physicians Section as Chair-Elect. As a student and resident, I was heavily involved in local, state and national advocacy organizations including the American Medical Association, California Medical Association, Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association and the California Chapter of the American College of Emergency Medicine. As a newly minted attending and member of the YPS, I look forward to continuing my involvement and serving my peers an advocate and leader within my community through my involvement with ACEP. Thank you for your consideration.

Alternative Councillor Candidate:
Haley Sauder, MD | Ohio

After seeing the changes in EM over the past five years, I feel strongly that the future of our specialty is in flux and that we need to use our voices to support each other and progress within the system. After working through my MBA coursework this past year, and seeing how other specialties have navigated changing landscapes, I have a unique perspective on how we can position ourselves in the house of medicine, as we are the pivotal link between the inpatient and the outpatient, the patient and the specialist. My specific focuses include physician burnout and mentorship, with focus on early career development.

Legislative Advisor Candidate:
Hannah Gordon, MD, MPH | Texas

I want to use my MPH and public policy background to help build a better health infrastructure for our patients and believe increasing physician understanding of health policy initiatives can help do so. To that end, I have also held numerous leadership positions in EMRA and ACEP including writing chapters in the EMRA Advocacy Handbook and Student Advising Guide and am currently working on the Legal & Regulatory module of ACEPs new Practice Essentials of EM. In these roles, I have worked to increase medical student and resident involvement in patient advocacy and attempted to pass legislation on using electronic medical record communication to prevent duplicative testing in the ED. I won EMRA’s Leadership and Advocacy Award and currently am the Baylor Health Policy and Advocacy Fellow where I am working on regulation and policy surrounding advanced directives.
