We are thrilled to bring you news of another exciting Scientific Assembly this coming April. Many things will stay the same – top notch speakers, bread and butter CME, along with some thought-provoking, inspirational talks and an opportunity to network. We will bring you more of the high-yield Breve Dulce talks, several of which will take place in a single track on the main stage. There will be small group hands-on sessions and traditional didactic sessions, as well as a patient panel to share their perspective. As always, AAEM20 will feature a number of pre-conference courses to extend your educational and CME opportunities – visit www.aaem.org/aaem20 for a full listing of courses available.
What to expect in 2020
Some things will change – we will be piloting more single-track sessions – unopposed talks so you don’t have to choose between lectures. We will be introducing new, thought-provoking sessions where we ask the experts what they really think about some of the new and controversial literature. There will be something for everybody.
Our goal every year is to get you the ‘need to know’ information to practice at your best, to inspire you to new horizons and to give you a venue in which to collaborate with your colleagues on issues important to you and to AAEM. There will be many opportunities to get involved, to reach out and mentor members and physicians early in their careers, and to learn about some of the issues that AAEM has been actively involved in by representing you. You are invited to attend any chapter, section or board meeting, and we encourage you to do so - perhaps you will become interested in becoming more involved in helping to shape the world of emergency medicine through AAEM. We have been busy at AAEM leading emergency physicians on the topics of balanced billing, due process, independent practice of advance practice providers and diversity and inclusion. We want you to know how AAEM is representing your interests and to become involved.
Theme: All Voices Heard
This year’s theme is “All Voices Heard.” This means that whether you are a physician, a patient, or the public, your voice is important and is acknowledged. As physicians, we need to be strong advocates for our patients, the public, and each other. At AAEM, we hear you!
We also want you to give to yourself by taking care of yourself. There will be plenty of opportunities at AAEM20 in Phoenix. There will be a fun run on Tuesday, April 21, a yoga opportunity on Wednesday, April 22, and a storytelling session on Tuesday, April 21, where you can tell your story or listen to some very engaging personal stories.
It is an honor to be charged with maintaining the high quality of emergency medicine’s preeminent educational conference, the AAEM Scientific Assembly. Please join us this year in beautiful downtown Phoenix.
