The “Letter to the Editor” on emergency medicine and family physicians written by W. Anthony Gerard, M.D. (August 1997, p. 382) contains an error. The fourth sentence in the fourth paragraph should have been stated as “The Board of Certification in Emergency Medicine (BCEM) offers a quality examination in emergency medicine that many feel is comparable to the ABEM examination. Many family physicians who have been excluded from the ABEM examination have been certified by this board.” In addition, the correct address for the author is: Lebanon Emergency Physicians, Good Samaritan Hospital, 4th and Walnut Sts., Lebanon, PA 17042.
