Important Notice:  Room Change
Due to our high registration numbers and some recent facility issues, we are moving the symposium’s room location to the GENERAL ASSEMBLY ROOM at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. You should enter through either of the two main entrances into the hospital. All attendees will be required to go through metal detectors to get into any hospital areas. Staff can direct you to the General Assembly Room. Maps of the campus and the main hospital building are linked below. We will also have some signage with direction arrows to assist. Lunch will start at 12:00p in the same room for all attendees, but those attending the Women in EM panel will be directed to the D-9 meeting room. The afternoon sessions (General track vs. Medical student track) will be split between two locations. General track will stay in the General Assembly Room, and the Medical student track will be held in the D-9 meeting room. Updates will be provided to attendees on-site in the morning.
