2014 Ohio Emergency Medicine Residents' Assembly 

On August 14, 2014, in Columbus, Ohio ACEP held its Ohio Emergency Medicine Residents’ Assembly! More than 160 residents, medical students, and leaders from Ohio ACEP, National ACEP, and EMRA gathered for the event, and 17 of Ohio’s 18 emergency medicine residency programs were represented.

We kicked off the Assembly with a personal welcome from Dr. John Lyman, Ohio ACEP President, and Dr. Alex Rosenau, President of ACEP. Dr. Lyman introduced residents and medical students to the Ohio Chapter by describing Ohio ACEP’s three strategic pillars—Advocacy, Education, and Leadership. Dr. Rosenau highlighted our shared goals, including:

  • Limited liability reform for EMTALA-mandated care
  • Fair payment and reimbursement for emergency physicians
  • Protecting patient access to quality emergency care
  • Preserving the ability to serve patients in a time-critical environment

Dr. Catherine Marco led a “Life After Residency: Practice Options Panel” that explored some of the pros and cons of various emergency medicine practice environments so that residents can pick the option that fits them best. Thanks to our panelists!

  • Dr. Eileen Baker

The Assembly networking options featured more than 20 exhibitors, many actively recruiting for open positions in Ohio and around the country. During breaks, the judges for the inaugural Ohio ACEP Poster Competition (Dr. Ann Dietrich, Ohio ACEP Medical Director; Dr. Purva Grover, Ohio ACEP Board of Directors and Poster Chair; Dr. Hans House, ACEP Board of Directors; and Alex Rosenau, President of ACEP) checked out each research poster and finalized their score cards!

The day’s final featured speaker, Dr. Kevin Klauer gave a “Life After Residency” reality check with his High Risk Emergency Medicine talk! The interactive workshop was lively, and Dr. Klauer did a great job of injecting some fun into his presentation!

Dr. John Lyman closed out the day by announcing the winner of the Poster Competition. The competition was tough, but when the judges’ scorecards were tallied, Drs. Jessica Rando and Derek Broering were the winners! The two Wright State EM residents and their poster—Intranasal Naloxone Administration by Police First-Responders is Associated with Improved Survival of Opioid Overdose Victims—won the very first Ohio ACEP Poster Competition and a $250 cash prize!
