Member Testimonial: 

"WACEP has been an integral part of my professional life for nearly 15 years. I was pulled in because of the camaraderie with other emergency physicians and have stayed an active member because of the tremendous positive impact it has on the everyday practice of emergency medicine. From protecting physicians from frivolous litigation to streamlining the evaluation of patients in mental health crisis and even simplifying continuing education requirements, WACEP is there.“  ~Mike Repplinger, MD, PhD, FACEP
