A Space To Connect With Your EM Community

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!

Join Essentials of EM from the comfort of your couch!

We understand travel might look a little different this year, but you don’t have to miss out. As always, we’ll be streaming the action in real-time via the EEM live stream. This year, we’re pulling out all the stops to make our 2021 virtual event the most engaging and memorable one yet.

Can’t make the online conference in real-time? No worries: each day’s events will be recorded and available to view on-demand so you can experience them on your own schedule. When you combine EEM’s thoughtfully-designed 5 to 15 minute lectures with on-demand availability, you have the ability to learn something that will change your practice anytime you have a moment-- between seeing patients, while you’re grabbing a snack, or even during a bathroom break. EEM On-Demand is as high-yield as it gets: it’s focused education from world-class faculty that fits seamlessly into your demanding schedule.
