What People Are Saying About TCEP Connect >>

TCEP Connect brings me together with my colleagues and is the best antidote to burnout that I can imagine!  I love spending time with my colleagues talking about our toughest cases and cutting edge medicine.  But my passion is advocating for our profession and our patients in Austin and in DC!

Dr. Alison Haddock

As physicians, we are tied to each other by more than an electronic health record and common training. We are bound by a revered, centuries-old tradition of commitment to caring for people.  TCEP Connect lets me reestablish my contact with and commitment to that spirit of service, strengthened by real, human-to-human communication with my fellow emergency physicians.

Dr. Angela F Gardner

TCEP Connect is a great place for Texas Emergency Medicine Docs, Residents, and Medical Students to network with one another.  The educational seminars are always excellent and relate to issues important to me, but my favorite aspect is the family friendly atmosphere and fun activities for the kids.  It always seems to get better every year — I can’t wait to see what is in store for us in Houston!!

A Word From The President…

Heidi Knowles, MD, FACEP

President, Texas College of Emergency Physicians

“New location, shorter lectures, hot topics, new speaker and resident competitions, skills labs, golf tournament, receptions and more!  TCEP Connect is a fantastic opportunity to not only hear the most up-to-date management options for key conditions seen in the ED, it’s also your chance to mix and mingle with friends from around the state –your Emergency Medicine family! This year’s meeting is filled with exciting speakers, new formats and lots of fun. The Education Committee, led by Dr. Lynn Roppolo, has put in countless hours to ensure a successful event, with plenty of opportunities to make those connections we’ve missed throughout the year. Make sure to register today as we anticipate this meeting to be one of the best TCEP has ever had!”
