Staff Liaison – MEMC Executive Committee
The American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) recognizes the need to provide emergency medicine education in Spanish. The AAEM International Committee is pleased to present an educational series of interactive virtual courses for Spanish-speaking physicians. The series features live presentations from expert physicians covering current and important clinical topics in emergency medicine.
The target audience for the series are residents and doctors. Medical students are welcome to attend.
The audience for this program are physicians outside of the United States. For that reason, continuing medical education (CME) credit will not be offered.Learn More

Applications for the AAEM24 Scientific Assembly Scholarship are now closed. Applications for the AAEM25 scholarship program will open in fall 2024.
