Special Message on CME:
We know that many members are awaiting their TCEP Connect 2018 CME. We partnered with ACEP to have this delivered directly into the ACEP CME Tracker. ACEP has had some IT glitches that has delayed this. ACEP is working on this issue and has assured us it will appear in there any day.

REPORT


 
Theresa Tran, MD, MBA
TCEP Legislative Committee Chair

REPORT


 
Lynn Roppolo, MD, FACEP
 

It was a true honor and pleasure to chair the last TCEP CONNECT 2018 in Houston last April. Overall, the meeting was successful.

TCEP Connect: Medical Student Perspectives
 

REPORT


 
Lorelle Knight, Chair, TCEP Medical Student Committee, UTHSA Class of 2020
Jonathan Brewer, Board Member, TCEP Board of Directors, TAMCOM Class of 2019
 

It is unusual for a first-year medical student to have seen a Standard Letter of Evaluation. Few second-years know how many visiting rotations they should apply to, and most third-years never get the opportunity to speak to seven Program Directors in one room. Few specialties provide medical students with the kinds of opportunities available at TCEP Connect, and EM-minded medical students all across the state of Texas recognize this...

REPORT


 
Bryan Chen, MS-3, Texas A&M College of Medicine (TAMCOM)
 

Surrounded by commotion in every direction on the well-manicured grass, a sweaty team of emergency medicine residents slowly shuffled down the field toward me. Sporting matching bandanas with matching stains on their knees and shirts of grass and mud, they held onto their water bottles and Gatorade as they huffed and puffed over toward the Frogger challenge where I was stationed...
