Check Out the 2018 LDA Class

May 2 & 3, 2017: LDA Orientation and EM Forum
The Academy members gathered for the first time in Columbus, Ohio. The session gave the new LDA class an introduction to the Advocacy, Education, and Leadership pillars of Ohio ACEP. LDAs also had the opportunity to meet many state and national EM leaders as well as state legislators at the Ohio Statehouse.

August 9 & 10, 2017: LDA Team-Building and Residents’ Assembly
The Leadership Development Academy members discussed the book Turn the Ship Around by L. David Marquet, then joined the Board of Directors for a Team-Building Cooking Dinner! On August 10, the LDA class managed the Medical Student and Resident Poster Competition at the Ohio EM Residents’ Assembly.

October 3, 2017: Leadership Challenge
The LDAs participated in the Leadership Challenge at the SparkSpace Meeting Center in Downtown Columbus. The Leadership Challenge curriculum was focused on the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) which explores the 5 Practices of Exemplary Leadership:

Model The Way
Inspire A Shared Vision
Challenge The Process
Enable Others To Act
Encourage The Heart

October 27-29, 2017: ACEP Council
The LDA Class took DC by storm as they joined ACEP members from all over the country to gather at the ACEP Council meeting. The LDA class members actively served as Alternate Councillors representing Ohio ACEP's members. Each year, Council meets for two days in conjunction with the College’s annual Scientific Assembly to deliberate and vote on Board of Directors candidates, potential changes to ACEP Bylaws and proposed Resolutions that—if adopted—will guide ACEP initiatives, allocate funds, and set policies in the coming years.

April 26, 2018: The Ohio ACEP Emergency Medicine Forum
The LDA class attended the Emergency Medicine Forum which blends the best in medical education with the Ohio Chapter’s Annual Awards and elections. These proud LDA graduates received their diplomas at the EM Forum.

May 20-23, 2018: ACEP Leadership & Advocacy Conference
Emergency physicians from all over the country, including our Leadership Class from Ohio, converged on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, for National ACEP’s annual Leadership & Advocacy Conference. The Conference featured meetings with legislators, media training, and opportunities to learn how to effectively advocate for emergency medicine. The Leadership and Advocacy Conference is the capstone experience of the Leadership Development Academy because the physician who understands how to engage with public officials, the press, and the public is emergency medicine’s best possible advocate!



 LDA Graduates

Ohio ACEP has a rich history of helping to develop leaders who have moved on to prominence in local, state and national emergency medicine leadership roles. We are rightfully proud of these leaders.
