Enjoy the 2022 Event On-Demand

Be a part of something big, no matter where you are.

Virtual Ticket

This year we’ve upped the ante, to create a sense of community like no other virtual conference. As you’ve come to expect from EEM, we’ve blended live-hosted entertainment with world-class speakers and innovative thinking, PLUS:

  • The magic of EEM, 18 years in the making and redesigned for 2021
  • Medical education that will change your practice and your life, leaving you rejuvenated and ready for your next shift (15+ hours of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™)
  • Our on demand feature that lets you watch it live or at your convenience at the same price
  • Demos and moderated discussions designed to tackle today’s most controversial issues in the clinical setting
  • Bonus sessions with highly nuanced COVID content; including derm, cardio and critical care
  • And more: a live ERcast podcast, real-time faculty questions, live polls, real connections for networking, games, social events, a VIP Virtual Suite, our signature 5-15 minute live lectures… and much more.

You shouldn’t miss it and now you don’t have to.

What makes this conference different?

As EM clinicians ourselves, we know that our job can be frustrating, stressful, and even isolating at times. People come back to EEM year after year because they know it’s a learning party with lots of friends, laughs, and reminders of why we do what we do.

  • You’ll go to your next shift having learned a ton of things that will make your life easier, boost your confidence, and make you a better clinician.
  • Because you’re here to learn, you can truly let your guard down and have fun without guilt.
  • You can relax and say no to FOMO; because for the last 18 years, there’s been no other event like Essentials of EM in medicine.

Message from our CEO

So, how was your year? I am so proud of what the people of emergency medicine have done in the last year. The Hippo/Essentials team has been on the front lines, too. We have felt all of the emotions: burned out, isolated, and misunderstood, but also deep purpose, pride, and respect for our colleagues.

Essentials is not to be missed this year. Now, more than ever, we need to reconnect with our community - those who understand who we are and why we do this.

We designed every minute of EEM 2021 with you and this year in mind. Whether you join from home or in-person, we have dedicated ourselves to manifesting our mission at Essentials. That mission is to empower you to learn, grow, and thrive.

Thank you for your service, and please join us so we can take a few days out of our schedules to honor and celebrate the work that you do so well!

We cannot wait to see you.

- Aaron Bright MD, Emergency Medicine

Working my first shift since the EEM conference… The physician that I relieved asked me what I will do differently after attending the conference. My answer was that in addition to several pearls of practice that I will use, I will fall in love with my specialty all over again!

– Duane Harrison

Loved the conference in the past, unable to make it live, wanted info from the best and the brightest in a fantastic format. You never disappoint!
