Over the years, AAEM has worked to improve the field of emergency medicine by facilitating a number of advocacy programs and educational opportunities that support the professional growth of physicians. The organization works toward this goal by hosting such events as its Annual Scientific Assembly, which regularly brings together around 1,200 emergency medicine professionals for a weekend of scholarship and entertainment.
AAEM will hold its 2017 Scientific Assembly March 16-20, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency Orlando in Florida. The event will begin with a day of preconference courses on a variety of topics, ranging from reading EKGs to hands-on ultrasound instruction. Registration for the rest of the assembly is free to all AAEM members, who can enjoy diverse clinician-led programming and keynote speeches from industry leaders. Outside of regular event sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the Wellness Fun Run and other activities in the exhibit hall.
