ACEP YPS Chair John Corker has spent the past 2 years encouraging, empathizing, motivating, and advocating for young physicians dealing with workforce pressures, COVID-19 stressors, and life milestones encountered in their first years out of residency. Such outreach has been his nature since medical school, when he and 3 fellow students created Radio Rounds, a podcast that eventually inspired EMRA*Cast and ACEP YPS's newest webcast venture: EM LIFERS. He also serves on the Federal Government Affairs and Strategic Planning committees at ACEP. Dr. Corker practices in Ohio and Texas, and has spent the pandemic chairing a regional COVID-19 task force while serving as president-elect of his County Medical Society and on his state medical association's Board of Directors.
