“Emergency Care for America's Heroes”


GSACEP is the Government Services Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians. The GS chapter was formed in 1977 by ACEP to give military physicians a chapter “home” to build networking and leadership opportunities that would be consistent despite frequent military moves. GSACEP has expanded to represent the unique practice situations encountered by active duty, National Guard, and Reserve members, as well as physicians in federal service in the Veterans’ Administration, Indian Health Service, Department of Health and Human Services, and Public Health Service.
