Who is AEP?
The Association of Emergency Physicians (AEP) represents All Emergency Physicians from
across the United States and internationally who are interested in continually improving the
quality of emergency care for their patients, with a special emphasis on rural and underserved
AEP realizes that there are many myths promoted by those who espouse that
only EM-residency trained and ABEM or AOBEM certified physicians should be
working in emergency departments, and AEP works to dispel these myths. Among
our goals, we are dedicated to eliminating the discrimination and unfairness
that plagues our specialty. AEP realizes that there are many excellent emergency
physicians practicing high quality emergency medicine who have been excluded from
ABEM, AOBEM, and ACEP. The Association of Emergency Physicians (AEP) exists to
represent these physicians
AEP encourages all emergency physicians to excel in provision of quality,
up-to-date/"state-of the art", compassionate care, as well as in professional
and personal development. AEP recognizes the achievements of its members,
including education, training, board-certification, appointments, and other.
However, we do not believe that these achievements necessarily indicate or equate
to a quality practicing EP, and believe that these accomplishments need to be
recognized from an honest, appropriate perspective.
AEP encourages active involvement of its members and believes that together
we can make a positive difference.
