Welcome to the SAEM21 Virtual Meeting!

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted a shift in the way we conduct our SAEM annual meeting, moving us from an in-person gathering to a virtual implementation. But in the resilient and determined spirit of emergency medicine, we have made the most of these unprecedented times to bring you an innovative and imaginative virtual SAEM Annual Meeting experience that you will remember long after COVID-19 has been vanquished.

Working with a leading virtual event platform, we’ve taken the most outstanding elements of our in-person annual meeting and reimagined them in innovative ways to create an energizing, engaging, fully interactive online experience above and beyond anything we’ve ever done before.

This one-of-a-kind experience features everything you love about the SAEM Annual Meeting, and more, delivered to you in a fully virtual format:  
  • High-quality, groundbreaking plenary abstract sessions 
  • Interactive Q&A that lets you engage in robust scientific exchange
  • An inventive, interactive exhibit and symposia experience
  • A lively and engaging residency and fellowship fair 
  • A reimagined, first-of-its-kind virtual SonoGames! 
  • Not one, but TWO inspiring keynote addresses from distinguished speakers
  • Virtual networking events to foster personal and professional connections 
  • Opportunities to present your research, educational innovations, and didactics to a global audience 
  • Cutting-edge research and dynamic didactics from the best minds in academic EM
  • Expert educational content from world-class faculty 
  • Opportunities to cultivate collaboration with colleagues within the academic EM community
  • A few fun surprises! 
We look forward to gathering together in-person for SAEM22 in New Orleans; until then, we invite you to make yourself comfortable and enjoy first-rate educational content from the comfort of your own home or office!

Thank you for your unwavering commitment to SAEM, academic emergency medicine, and the patients and communities you serve. On behalf of the SAEM Program Committee, we’re excited to have you join us as we present discovery, learn together, make new connections...and have some fun!
