RESIDENTS' CONNECT 2020
2020 RESIDENTS' ASSEMBLY → GOING VIRTUAL → RESIDENTS' CONNECT 2020
Ohio ACEP did not host a “live” Residents’ Assembly this year. With continual Covid-19 concerns and travel restrictions in place for many hospitals and health systems, we knew we could not have a celebration of the size and style we are accustomed to.
Ohio ACEP committed to connecting our EM Residents virtually this year through Ohio ACEP’s EM Residents’ Connect 2020! This virtual and on-demand event is accessible as a resource through 2020 and includes Life After Residency content, panel discussions and a virtual exhibit hall.
In August Ohio EM Residency Programs received a Residents' Connect Party Box full of surprises! They also had a chance to win a Door Prize
Resident Representative to the Ohio ACEP Board
On August 13 resident members in attendance at the Ohio ACEP Residents’ Connect 2020 Town Hall voted on one resident leadership position for the Ohio ACEP Resident Board Member.
Ohio ACEP and the Board of Directors congratulate Dr. Abbey Smiley (The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center) on her election to the Ohio ACEP Board as an EM Resident Representative. We look forward to working with her in the year ahead.
Dr. Smiley will serve a one-year term, which will end at the 2021 Residents' Assembly.

Ohio ACEP successfully transitioned the Residents’ Assembly to a virtual Residents’ Connect 2020. The event began with a 90-minute, LIVE Town Hall (over 300 residents pre-registered). The town hall was hosted by Ohio ACEP President Dr. Ryan Squier, EMRA National President, Dr. Hannah Hughes (Chief Resident, University of Cincinnati), and EMRA President-elect Dr. R. J. Sontag (Mid-Ohio Emergency Services). The virtual event also provided over 4 hours of recorded clinical and life after residency content made available to all registrants in the Ohio ACEP Learning Management Platform through the end of the year. Ohio ACEP was thrilled to connect 360 individuals from over 14 residences throughout the state.
