The SAEM18 Program Committee is proud to once again bring a diverse and dynamic agenda to SAEM’s annual meeting. With submissions for didactics and the Advanced EM Workshop Day up by more than 50 percent over last year, all indications point to a 2018 annual meeting that’s on pace to outpace our hugely successful 2017 event.
As always, you can count on an unparalleled program of original research, engaging educational sessions, energetic events, and plenty of take-home tips. Plus, continuing in the tradition of our previous annual meeting, we’ve added several new features to enhance your experience and increase the value of your takeaway.
SAEM Masters Secret Series. Recognized leaders in academic emergency medicine will highlight important lessons learned throughout their careers; share techniques for career longevity and success; and discuss differences in life and career successes among different leaders and their styles. This interactive session will conclude with a Q&A period.
SAEM Master Scholars. Three Master Scholars will moderate three, never-before-presented oral abstracts of the highest quality, in three distinct topic areas pertinent to emergency care. These Master Scholar Sessions will be followed by a state-of-the-art “Master Scholar Update” on current and future research opportunities in the topic areas.
SAEM Professor Rounds. Specially selected e-poster presenters will provide synopses of their study findings while senior-level academicians, i.e., “The Professors,” provide commentary and lead a lively post-presentation open discussion. This session will kick off the e-posters session and will include refreshments.
RAMS Party. We’ve ramped up the revelry for SAEM’s annual party for residents and medical students! RAMS Party 2018 is at Revel Nightclub and Lounge–Indy’s newest posh hot spot, featuring two tiers, a huge dance floor, and giant video screens. Revelers can expect a high energy over-the-top Vegas nightclub experience with extended hours (until 2 am!), an open bar, live DJ, VIP areas, and catering from Kilroy’s Bar ‘n’ Grill. There will be a special guest appearance from Ram-Z the SAEM RAMS mascot, and party goers will receive the red-carpet treatment, including fun photo ops to help you capture the memory of what promises to be an amazingly good time!
SIMWars. The Simulation Academy is proud to bring the biggest and best SIMWars in emergency medicine to SAEM18! Watch residency teams take on intense, highly complex patients in a simulated emergency department environment designed to challenge every aspect of emergency patient care. We promise... You have never experienced anything quite like SIMWars 2018.
SonoGames®. The Academy of Emergency Ultrasound (AEUS) is bringing in experts from across the nation to craft the ultimate emergency ultrasound competition for residents. This year residents’ knowledge and skills of point-of-care ultrasound will be tested like never before. We can’t say too much (it’s top secret!); you’ll just have to be there to find out!
Dodgeball. Last year we transformed a basic ballroom into THE most amazing dodgeball court ever, complete with bleachers, hot dogs, and cold suds… And we’re doing it again for SAEM18! Be sure to stop by and watch residents take on the SAEM Board of Directors for the title of 2018 Dodgeball Champs. New this year…The winners receive their very own, private VIP area at the RAMS Party!
That’s just a taste of what you can expect at SAEM18 in Indianapolis. The schedule is packed and waiting for you to customize it according to your particular needs. In addition to a handy, on-site printed program, SAEM18 is presented in digital format, with a synced online program planner and mobile app, so you can create your schedule at home and have it at your fingertips onsite. And don’t forget…All of our Advanced EM Workshop Day and didactics will be recorded and made available free-of-charge after the annual meeting. So, if you miss out on attending a session in person, you can still catch it online when you get home.
On behalf of the SAEM Program Committee and myself, I hope you enjoy attending SAEM18 as much as we enjoyed putting it together for you.
