About Us

Alabama ACEP is the local chapter of national ACEP, the American College of Emergency Physicians. Founded in 1975, the chapter actively represents more than 250 emergency physicians, residents and medical students in Alabama.

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

Our mission includes:

  • To be the voice of emergency medicine in the state of Alabama
  • To increase respect in the house of medicine by providing leadership at the local and national levels
  • To respond to the practice needs of our members through education, information and advocacy
  • To provide a forum for social interaction and networking with other emergency physicians around Alabama
