SAEM19 is a milestone in the history of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM); It’s SAEM’s 30th anniversary and the Society’s 30th Annual Meeting!
For three decades, SAEM has been at the forefront of providing outstanding educational opportunities to emergency medicine academicians. For at least that long, SAEM members have been making tremendous contributions to emergency medicine research, teaching, and practice.
In celebration of what we as a professional community have achieved, and in recognition of 30 years of excellence in academic emergency medicine research and training, the SAEM19 Program Committee is proud to bring you another unparalleled Annual Meeting program.
In addition to our usual agenda of cutting-edge education, state-of-the-art original research, and innovation in academic emergency medicine, you can look forward to high-quality career development opportunities, energetic networking events, and all the fun you would expect out of an Annual Meeting in Las Vegas.
Plan to Party We’re having an anniversary party at 1 OAK Nightclub — one of the sexiest, swankiest, most sought out hotspots in Las Vegas — and all our SAEM19 friends are invited. This will be one lit party: live DJ, open bar, and state-of-the-art sound and lighting set against the flash and glitter of classic Las Vegas. Don’t miss out!
