Written Board Review Course

Written Board Review Virtual Version Announcement

Dear AAEM Members:

It was with a heavy heart that we cancelled the 2020 Scientific Assembly. Our educational offerings are the best in emergency medicine, and we know how much you enjoy the in-person interaction with speakers and fellowship with co-attendees, as well as how much you depend on the CME! In an effort to compensate for the loss of those benefits, the Board of Directors has collaborated with the Directors of the Written Board Review Course to provide you with this one-time only limited time offer of free registration to the virtual version of the course. The Written Board Review Virtual Version will be a member benefit from now through midnight December 31, 2020. It will be the same high caliber course, which has led thousands to success on the ABEM Written Qualifying Exam and the ABEM ConCertTM Exam. You may access the course as often as you would like during the duration of this free offer. Please enjoy the benefits of high quality CME and the excellent learning opportunities, courtesy of AAEM and your Written Board Review Course team!
