For the first time in ACEP‘s history, our Board of Directors truly reflects the diverse membership of the College.
There are 15 members of the Board of Directors and five of them are female. This is the most female physicians ACEP has ever had on its Board at one time. There are Board members with a variety of racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.
One Board member is under 40, and five are 60 or older. Nearly all geographic areas of the country are represented.
In addition to being attending physicians, there are seven Board members who hold academic physician positions. Some are emergency department directors or EMS directors. Others hold various emergency medicine administration positions in addition to their practice.
They come from a variety of practice settings, including small independent groups, large emergency physician groups, community hospitals, urban trauma centers, university academic institutions, military hospitals, freestanding emergency departments, and even one rural setting. Members of our Board understand the practice environments of our members.
With this unprecedented diversity and inclusiveness of our ACEP Board, we are able to be more responsive to the diverse needs and perspectives of our members.
