Links to national ACEP
Formed in 1971, RI ACEP is one of the country’s oldest chapters in national ACEP. We are a diverse group of practicing emergency physicians, including academicians, private practice, large and small groups, fee for service, not-for-profit, individual practitioners, hospital-employed, boarded and non-boarded, young ad older, EM residents, and enthusiastic medical students. We represent emergency physicians from all political persuasions. This diversity strengthens our organization’s efforts to pursue our goals.
All meetings are open to the membership and active participation is highly encouraged. To find out how you can be involved, contact one of our Board members or our Executive Assistant, Megan E. Turcotte.
