To the membership of AAEM,
I would first like to thank you for the opportunity to serve as the AAEM YPS Director for the past 2 years. I am running for re-election to the board, but this time as an At-Large board member. It has been my honor to have represented the young physicians section and young physician as a whole on the board for the past 2 years. I’d like to think that I was able to bring unique perspectives to AAEM by being a recent residency graduate. I am asking for the opportunity to continue to serve on the board for AAEM, and to continue to advocate for emergency physicians and the unique challenges we face. My personal goal for 2021 is to use my role on the board to advocate for all physicians who have been impacted by COVID-19, particularly due to a depressed job market. Many EM physicians are having a hard time finding open positions in a depressed job market due to hours restrictions and staffing cuts. We also continue to see the number of EM residencies rise due to private equity and other for-profit systems. I believe in AAEM’s message and believe AAEM is a leader when it comes to these issues. It is my goal that we continue to fight for the every day emergency physician and continue to be the voice against the abuses against ourselves and our specialty.
In terms of my personal background, I have tried to bring some additional knowledge and skill sets to the AAEM board, as I have a background in business and finance as I have received an MBA degree. I also am a board certified physician advisor and work in my hospital on billing and coding, as well as reimbursement from government and private payers. This past year, I have helped develop AAEM’s business plan for this current year and have worked on several task forces and committees. I have been involved with AAEM since my second year of residency. I was on the executive board of RSA as a resident and YPS board as a recent graduate. I believe in AAEM’s mission and values above all else. AAEM has a unique perspective on physician advocacy and fair practice, which speak to me as a clinician. AAEM is the premier EM physician organization and I am so proud to be a member of such a strong and dedicated organization. I will continue to be an active member in AAEM as long as I am an emergency physician. In terms of other roles I have, I am currently the Assistant Medical Director of the University Hospital at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center in addition to the Program Director for the Physician Advisor and Peer to Peer program.
I hope to be able to continue to serve on the AAEM board. I can’t thank the members of AAEM enough for everything it has done for me as a person, clinician, and leader in emergency medicine.
