To help you and your faculty prepare residents for the future, ACEP offers fully funded visits by emergency medicine leaders to your residency program.
Residency visits bring ACEP leaders face-to-face with faculty and residents and engage the future of the specialty in a wide variety of discussions from ever-changing legislative and regulatory landscapes, to practice management issues, to career advice and preparation.
The ACEP Residency Visit Program brings a national leader to an emergency medicine residency at no cost to that program. The speaker educates both residents and faculty on leadership, practice management, national and local politics, and principles of advocacy involving our specialty. The leader may also present on clinical topics requested by the residency program. We want to demonstrate the value of ACEP membership and hear feedback on ways to better serve our members. Emergency medicine leaders will play a critical role in defining the future of healthcare reform, payment reform, and patient care. Exposing young physicians to advocacy and the challenges and successes we encounter as a specialty is critical to their education.
Getting physicians involved early in their career is important for career growth, mentorship, and reducing burnout. This visit encourages involvement in the College and facilitates two-way communication between ACEP leaders and residents and faculty. In this way, ACEP gets to hear about concerns of the membership on the ground level while residents and faculty are encouraged and inspired to develop their careers through getting involved with ACEP.
