• Idaho ACEP

    Idaho ACEP is the local chapter of national ACEP, the American College of Emergency Physicians. Idaho ACEP exists to support the availability of high-quality emergency medical services to all patients within the state of Idaho, and to advocate for our members, our patients and our specialty.

     

    Founded in October 1976, the chapter actively represents more than 140 emergency physicians, residents and medical students working at hospitals throughout Idaho. Idaho ACEP is a diverse and democratic organization that promotes and preserves the integrity and independence of emergency medicine.

    We are actively involved in a wide range of issues that matter to emergency physicians and our patients, including ongoing legislation in Boise, public health and safety, and disaster preparedness and response.

    Idaho ACEP is also actively involved in pre-hospital care. Our chapter helped create and is a member of the Idaho Statewide EMS Physician Commission, which establishes and monitors the scope of practice of all state EMS providers. We participate in the Idaho EMS Advisory Council that represents EMS providers, educators, administrators and elected officials involved in EMS throughout the state. We are also actively involved with legislative issues and testify before both the House and Senate, as needed.

    As a member of Idaho ACEP, you are making sure your voice is heard by state lawmakers. You are also learning about issues that affect you and your patients and you are contributing to the advancement of your specialty.
