“We connect Virginia’s emergency physicians to make sure the state’s emergency medicine environment is there to serve the growing needs of the sick and injured!”

– Mark Sochor






VACEP has been the voice of emergency medicine in Virginia since 1970 and represents more than 700 emergency physicians in many different settings, in community and academic practice throughout Virginia. Emergency Medicine residents and medical students from all the training programs in Virginia are represented as well.

Emergency physicians are the only doctors standing by 365/24/7 who will see any patient, any time for any condition.

VACEP’s Chapter’s Board of Directors relies on member input to develop and guide the activities of VACEP. All members are welcomes at Board meetings to share concerns, debate, develop and implement solutions to vexing problems.

VACEP is recognized by elected officials, government agencies, health care organizations, insurers/payors and medical colleagues for our advocacy on behalf of emergency physicians and patients.
