Through EMRA’s Government Services Committee, we are establishing a sustainable network between all military service emergency medicine residents to help civilian residents transition to military careers and foster academic collaboration among all the armed services.

This committee is for you if you are interested in:

  • Learning more about military emergency medicine as a student, resident or civilian physician.
  • Developing a nationwide network to collaborate and mentor across all armed services, medical schools and residencies.
  • Showcasing the unique and important contributions military medicine offers emergency medicine.

Government Services Committee Objectives

  1. Establish a support network to promote mentorship, research, and leadership between civilian and military emergency medicine residency programs.
  2. Broadcast military medicine and our unique contributions to emergency medicine by increasing the presence of military medicine academic topics in EMRA.
  3. Provide resources to prepare medical students and civilian residents’ for the transition to military careers.

Government Services Chapter of ACEP

GSACEP is the Government Services Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians. The GS chapter was formed in 1977 by ACEP to give military physicians a chapter “home” to build networking and leadership opportunities that would be consistent despite frequent military moves. GSACEP has expanded to represent the unique practice situations encountered by active duty, National Guard, and Reserve members, as well as physicians in federal service in the Veterans’ Administration, Indian Health Service, Department of Health and Human Services, and Public Health Service.
