     Dr. Arthur Pancioli,Associate Professor and Vice Chairman of the UC Department of Emergency Medicine, represented our
     Department as a faculty discussant in the finals of the EMRA/CORD CPC competition. This competition began last spring at
     the SAEM meeting in New York with over 60 participants from programs around the country. Having won his division, Dr.
     Pancioli competed in the finals in Washington and was ultimately chosen Runner Up among faculty discussants nationally.
     Art did a tremendous job discussing his case and at the same time he was able to express our Department’s commitment to
     the ultrasound program to a wide audience. He deserves our thanks for representing us in the national spotlight!

            A long standing tradition at the ACEP Scientific Assembly is our Alumni Reception, which provides an opportunity
            for our current faculty and residents to mingle with our faculty and resident alumni. This year’s event was held
            Sunday, September 25 at the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel.
