Annual Meeting

SAEM’s annual meeting is the largest forum of its kind for the presentation of original education and research in academic emergency medicine. Hosted in a different major U.S. city in May of each year, the SAEM annual meeting is a dynamic four-day gathering of academic emergency medicine professionals from around the world. Averaging more than 3,200 attendees, the SAEM annual meeting offers both professional and educational sessions. Registration for the SAEM annual meeting opens annually on December 1.

Educational Sessions Abstracts present research data, including study background and methodology, research limitations and results, and the conclusions/significance of the study. Abstract session lengths vary depending on the presentation type: plenary (15 minutes), full oral (12 minutes), lightning oral (eight minutes), ePoster (seven minutes). Advanced EM Workshops are intensive educational sessions that focus on particular techniques, skills, and practical aspects of the specialty. More than a dozen full- and half-day workshops cover specialized areas in emergency medicine and strengthen knowledge and skills in specific topic areas such as clinical Innovations, communication, gender and bias, research, teaching, and more. Didactics are presentations that are designed to teach on a particular subject and can vary in structure from lecture and flipped classroom formats to panels and small group discussions. More than 100 innovative and interactive sessions cover a range of educational topics in key categories, including: administrative, career development, education, clinical, research. IGNITE! talks are fast-paced, highly energetic, captivating, and engaging presentations on a variety of topics. The IGNITE! format is five minutes in length with 20 auto-advancing slides. A panel of judges selects a “Best of IGNITE!” winner from each IGNITE! session. An “Audience Choice Award” is also given at each session based on audience polling. All topics are accepted. Speakers in the past have talked about their experiences in disaster relief, waxed poetic about the role of machine learning in EM, and challenged core practices in EM critical care and education.

Innovations present novel ideas, new products, innovative procedures, and unique approaches in medical education, faculty development, wellness, operations, and patient care. Innovations are presented in either a seven-minute oral presentation or as a tabletop/ hands-on demonstration. Consensus Conference gathers junior and senior researchers, thought leaders, and other stakeholders in emergency medicine to generate research agendas for the important, unanswered questions facing emergency care, leading to high-quality, funded research projects of varying scopes from a variety of funding sources. Topics have included telehealth, pediatric emergency medicine, wellness, simulation, shared decision making, imaging, and gender-specific research.

Training + Networking SAEM Leadership Forum provides exposure to core leadership topics with an emphasis on experiential learning and practical application. Junior Faculty Development Forum is an opportunity for early-career faculty to engage with senior leaders in emergency medicine to develop strategies for promotion, productivity, and academic advancement. Chief Resident Forum features didactic presentations, interactive sessions, panel discussions, and networking sessions with fellow resident leaders and established senior leaders in emergency medicine administration, education, and research.
