New Jersey ACEP is the voice of emergency physicians throughout the state. We work in a variety of settings---urban, suburban and rural; academic and community; public and private. But we all face many of the same issues---scarce resources, overcrowding, lack of reimbursement, workplace violence and hazards, ethnic and gender disparities. And now, we serve as the frontline providers in the face of a worldwide pandemic.
We provide the safety net for our communities---24, 7, 365. We are the provider of first and last resort for many of our patients. We are the glue that holds the US healthcare system together.
If you are an emergency physician, NJ ACEP is your organization. We will advocate and fight for adequate resources to provide quality care, and for common-sense public policy to back that up. We welcome your participation and support in furthering these goals. Please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email; attend one of our quarterly meetings, our Scientific Assembly in September or our Membership Dinner in May; or stop by our reception at ACEP Scientific Assembly in October.
Our meetings and events will all be virtual, at least through the end of 2020. You can find the details for all of our events by clicking on the “Meetings & Events” tab on our homepage.
I look forward to hearing from you. And be safe!
-Steven Hochman, MD, FACEP 2020-2021 President
