ACEP Young Physicians Section Poster Symposium
The ACEP Young Physicians Section hosts an annual poster symposium at the Leadership & Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C. Abstracts are accepted for this cycle until Jan. 31, 2017. While any topics related to EM issues will be considered, advocacy issues are strongly encouraged (ie, boarding, overcrowding, reimbursement, leadership, health policy and education, medical liability reform, advocacy training and fellowships). For more information please see the ACEP-YPS site or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Conference
At the ACEP Leadership & Advocacy Conference, you will have the opportunity to learn advocacy skills, be exposed to the latest issues facing emergency medicine, and receive updates directly from members of Congress. Additionally, there will be a section focused solely on issues facing residents. You must be involved to help delineate these policy issues unique to residents. You will have the chance to walk across the mall and take an active part in forming healthcare policy. Bring your excitement to learn and your desire to advocate for the rights of patients, residents, and emergency medicine.
There is a nominal fee of $60 for resident members to attend the Leadership & Advocacy Conference. Paying for travel to Washington, DC, lodging, and related expenses can be difficult for the average cash-strapped EM resident. Many residency programs and ACEP chapters have funding that may be available to residents interested in attending.
