    Susan B. Promes, MD, MBA

    Chair, Emergency Medicine

    Penn State University

    My interest is serving as Member-at-Large for AACEM. I have served as Chair of Emergency Medicine at Penn State Hershey for the past 9 years. I served as the Chair of Penn State Health's Clinically Integrated Network. I served as Director of Curricular Affairs for USCF's GME office and Interim Assoc Dean and DIO at UCSF. I am on the Board of Trustees for Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute and SAEM Foundation.

    I was the recipient of SAEM Hal Jayne Excellence in Education Award. I have received multiple teaching awards from the various institutions I have worked at over the years. I received the ACGME Parker J. Palmer Courage to Teach Award. The Gold Humanism in Medicine Award. I received the CORD Distinguished Educator Award. Beta Sigma Gamma Honor Society Award for my accomplishments during my MBA program.

    I believe that AACEM can best serve its members and the profession by being strategic vocal advocates for the advancement of our specialty. I believe the organization must be bold and outspoken to share our value and importance in the house of medicine and for our patients. We must be diligent and strategic in our approach sharing our voice and talents to move our specialty forward. It is my belief that personal connections matter and assuring that each of the Chairs in ACCEM feel they have a safe place to share challenges, make connections, and gain advice are important ways that AACEM can continue to serve members. I would like to see personal outreach to members that we rarely hear from on our list serve to engage them more in the wonderful community that is AACEM. I would work diligently to see our specialty again rise to one of the most desirable specialties for medical students entering residency programs across the county. Medical education is my passion and my love for emergency medicine is something I would bring to the board with my commitment to dedicate my time and talents to do everything I can to assure that our specialty thrives. If I am elected to this position, I promise that I will serve the organization to the best of my ability to advance our specialty and support my fellow chairs and those desiring to be chairs.
