ACEP 40th Anniversary Picture

The Ohio ACEP Seventh Annual Residents' Assembly and Fifth Annual Summer Symposium were held at the Cherry Valley Lodge and CoCo Key Water Resort in Newark, Ohio on July 22 & 23, 2008. The location inspired a family-friendly event and was filled with many networking and educational opportunities. The format of the Residents' Assembly and Summer Symposium was similar to prior years with the Residents' Assembly taking place on the first day until 5:00 pm. The Summer Symposium began following the close of the Residents' Assembly and included a reception in the exhibit hall and a dinner and annual member meeting. The Summer Symposium continued through the 23rd until 1:00 pm. Keynote Speaker W. Richard Bukata, MD and ACEP President-Elect Nicholas Jouriles, MD, FACEP highlighted the speaker's list.

The Residents' Assembly program gave emergency medicine residents an opportunity to meet with experienced regional and national experts and develop an analytical and effective approach to a career in emergency medicine. Residents also had the opportunity to meet with a number of physicians and representatives from various areas of the state and the country that had positions available. The workshop also included Ohio's emergency physicians presenting a panel on practice options and discussions about interviews, the resume, contracts and risk management. Ohio ACEP would like to thank the following Residents' Assembly panelists and speakers: James Augustine, MD, FACEP, Thomas Carter, DO, Paul Culler, MD, Nicholas Jouriles, MD, FACEP, Kevin Klauer, DO, FACEP, Ryan Longstreth, MD, FACEP, John Lyman, MD, FACEP, Daniel Martin, MD, FACEP, Steven Stack, MD, FACEP and Michael Weinstock, MD.

The Annual Meeting and Summer Symposium included the election of the Ohio ACEP Board of Directors and Councillors, and two presentations by Dr. Rick Bukata: "Recent Articles that Should Change Your Practice" and "Taking Your ED from Good to Great." During the Annual Meeting Thomas W. Lukens, MD, PhD, FACEP was presented with the "Bill Hall Award for Service" to Ohio ACEP. This award is given to a member each year who best reflects the emergency physician character of Dr. William Hall, such as selfless giving of time and enthusiasm for patient care.
