American Academy of Emergency Medicine

The American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) is a non-profit democratic organization of 8,000 members. The Academy supports the establishment and recognition of emergency medicine internationally as an independent specialty and is committed to its role in the advancement of emergency medicine worldwide.

AAEM has been co-sponsoring international meetings for many years promoting the specialty of emergency medicine and offering a wonderful opportunity for academic and scientific exchange. AAEM is also partnering internationally to offer academic and scientific exchange across the world. MEMC21 will be the XIth Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress, an international conference which is held every other year. In past years, AAEM has worked with the Sociedad Argentina de Emergencias (SAE) in offering a jointly sponsored biennial meeting of the Inter-American Emergency Medicine Congress (IAEMC) and the Korean Society of Emergency Medicine (KSEM) to hold the first Pan-Pacific Emergency Medicine Congress (PEMC) in Seoul, South Korea. Most recently, AAEM worked with the Department of Emergency Medicine at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center-Jeddah (KFSHRC-J) and Saudi Society of Emergency Medicine (SASEM) to jointly sponsor the 3rd International Red Sea Emergency Medicine Conference (RSEM20). And now, AAEM is excited to once again bring you another exceptional international congress on 21-24 September 2022!
