Upcoming Job Fair

It’s an online event connecting emergency medicine professionals with private practice employers, group practices, hospitals, health systems, and other recruiters around the country. Job seekers can browse employer profiles and general emergency medicine and subspecialty positions, then privately interact with employers via live chat or live video chat on a mobile device or desktop.

ACEP shares your concerns about the EM workforce landscape and is working to lead the specialty into the future. The final EM workforce report from the multiorganizational task force, including ACEP, the American Board of Emergency Medicine, the American College of Osteopathic Emergency Physicians, the American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine, the Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors, the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association, and the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, will be published this spring. ACEP hosted private and public summits in early April to discuss the findings of the task force and strategies for a path forward. In an all-member email sent on April 15, ACEP identified eight key considerations we are committed to addressing. In our ACEP4U column in the May 2021 issue, the ACEP Board explains those commitments in greater detail.
