Standing on the Front Lines of Medicine
Emergency medicine is one of the most critical – and most challenging – fields in modern medicine. The physicians in our ranks are not only care for life-and-death injuries, traumas and illnesses, they’re often the only ones caring for the millions of under- and uninsured patients who appear in Oklahoma emergency departments every day.
The Emergency Department is the De Facto front door of the hospital and our health care system. The Emergency Physician is the leader of the Emergency Medicine team.
As emergency physicians, we know you need support – and we know what support you need.
As a member of the Oklahoma Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians, you have access to invaluable resources, advocacy, news and a network of likeminded colleagues. But, what’s more, our members will have access to you, your insights, ideas and expertise.
Past OCEP president Jeff Goodloe, MD, FACEP, was elected Chairman of the Board of Directors of National ACEP!
Kurtis Mayz MD, JD, MBA, FACEP ran for ACEP Speaker of the Council, and Robert Hancock DO, FACEP, ran for National American College of Emergency Physicians Board of Directors at American College of Emergency Physicians Council 2023. They both came up a bit short, but plan to run again next year.
Kudos to our Oklahoma leaders in emergency medicine for stepping up to the plate and striving to lead on a national level. Quite a feat for what is considered a small ACEP chapter. We’re all very proud of you!
