ACEP Recap

December 5, 2019
Program Highlights

Recently, our PGY3 class had the opportunity to attend the ACEP National Conference, hosted in Denver! It was cold and snowy, but we settled in well to our program sponsored mansion ready for a week of networking, lectures, no clinical responsibilities, and general tomfoolery.

The week was packed full of interesting lectures, free swag, and snow covered adventures around Denver. Fortunately, we were blessed with “Papa Steve”, his minivan, and his New York driving experience to chauffeur us to events around the city. We rode mechanical bulls, found our way to Prisma sponsored parties, hit up “ClubEMRA”, and binged Halloween themed movies. There were lectures from Dr. Pfennig to Dr. Mattu that made us smarter. And there was video evidence of Ben and Jacob pretending to be cowboys that may earn them future jobs as wranglers if emergency medicine doesn’t work out.

All in all, it was a wonderful week of academic R&R that were much needed accompanied by beautiful, snowy weather. Things were excellent until almost everyone’s flight was cancelled due to weather, and we had to get creative to get back to Greenville. The adventure would not have been complete without a rebooked 5am flight to Atlanta and 2 hour road trip to make it back for 3pm shifts on Thursday afternoon. Props to Dr. Dimeo and Dr. Mehta for getting the residents back in time.  Looking forward to our next adventure.

We had an awesome trip!
