Florida College of Emergency Physicians (FCEP)
The Florida College of Emergency Physicians (FCEP) is the most progressive Emergency Medicine organization in Florida.
FCEP was provided its charter in 1972 by ACEP to form a separate independent chapter. Dr. William Haeck, FCEP’s first president, worked diligently to form the membership of FCEP, which would grow into the hundreds in the early 70s. Today, there are over 1,500 practicing emergency physicians in Florida who see and treat close to 7 million patients each year. This number will continue to grow with 14 emergency medicine residency programs in Florida.
The Florida College of Emergency Physicians exists to promote high quality emergency medical care, to empower emergency physicians and to protect the patients they serve.
To support and promote the health and safety of the public by providing the emergency physician community with the necessary tools to ensure the availability and delivery of quality emergency care.
