Letter to the Editor


To those of us who have been practicing emergency medicine many years, the challenges have never been greater. Edwin Leap, MD, deals with many of those challenges in his writings in a genuine way that only an experienced, practicing emergency physician can.

I have worked in 53 hospitals in 10 states to date through my practice as a locums physician. I have met hundreds of other emergency physicians, and most of them have no idea who the current president of ACEP is, but virtually all of them not only know who Edwin is, but like me, they have several favorite stories to share from his writings in EMN. He is important to our specialty, just as EMN is, and it is my sincerest hope that he will continue his writings because they are actually therapeutic and shine a light on difficult or frustrating aspects of practice we all face often in a humorous way.

Thanks for supporting our specialty!
