On August 10, 2017, nearly 200 residents, medical students, and leaders from Ohio ACEP, National ACEP, and EMRA gathered for the Ohio Emergency Medicine Residents’ Assembly in Columbus. Twenty EM residencies and medical schools were in attendance for Ohio ACEP’s signature event supporting EM residents.

Didn’t make it to the Assembly? Here’s what you missed!

EM Residents from CWRU at MetroHealth & Cleveland ClinicAfter Ohio ACEP President Purva Grover, MD, FACEP, welcomed attendees to the Assembly, Catherine Marco, MD, FACEP—Wright State Professor and nationally recognized medical ethics expert—led the day’s first session, “The Toughest Cases: Legal, Moral, and Ethical Dilemmas in Emergency Medicine.” Dr. Marco discussed cases that challenged attendees to think about tricky questions like when it’s appropriate for a physician to get a court order to treat a child against the guardian’s wishes, when a patient has the capacity to leave against medical advice, and how physicians can ethically discuss cases on social media platforms. 

Dr. Catherine Marco, 2017 Residents AssemblyWealth management guru, Mark Hardy, CLU, ChFC, CASL, enlightened EM residents and med students about financial planning for new physicians, including valuable advice on student loans and saving for the future.

During the Career Fair, residents and med students got the chance to meet with employers from 40 EM physician groups and hospital recruiters, giving attendees an awesome opportunity to ask questions and get a closer look at different types of practice environments.                 

Kevin Klauer, DO, EJD, FACEPBouncebacks! co-author, national EM leader, and risk management expert—led attendees in a lively session, “High Risk Cases in Emergency Medicine,” on minimizing risk, improving patient care, and protecting yourself in the event of a lawsuit.

Keynote Speaker Dr. Michael Weinstock

In the afternoon, Dr. Michael Weinstock, MD—EM:RAP contributor and co-author of the Bouncebacks! series—gave a dynamic keynote address, “Bouncebacks! Critical Care: Footsteps of the New EM Physician.” Dr. Weinstock challenged residents and med students with cases of ED bouncebacks, how they might have been avoided, and how protecting yourself legally is also good medicine.

Dr. Ryan Stegenga Resident Rep to the Ohio ACEP BoardDuring the Assembly, resident Ohio ACEP members elected their Resident Representative to the Ohio ACEP Board of Directors. There were four candidates for the position: Drs. Sambita Basu (Ohio State), Amye Farag (Mercy St. Vincent), Joshua Faucher (Ohio State), and Ryan Stegenga (Case Western at MetroHealth and Cleveland Clinic). Congratulations to Dr. Ryan Stegenga who was elected Resident Representative by his fellow residents!

Ohio ACEP would like to send a big thanks to Residents’ Assembly Planning Chair, Dr. Catherine Marco, as well as all the exhibitors and sponsors, faculty, and poster judges, as well as leaders from ACEP, Ohio ACEP, and EMRA for making the 2017 Ohio Emergency Medicine Residents’ Assembly such a memorable event!
