Welcome to SAEM 2014

SAEM 2014 is certain to be the greatest Annual Meeting to date! The most brilliant minds in academic emergency medicine will come together May 13-17 in Dallas, TX to showcase their trailblazing research and share with you the newest advancements in emergency medicine education. Join us as we discuss the many topics of emergency care and explore the intricacies unique to our field.

Pause to look back… 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the amalgamation of the University Association for Emergency Medicine (UAEM) and the Society of Teachers of Emergency Medicine (STEM) into the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine. Join us as we take a look back over the years to celebrate the pioneers of emergency medicine and how far we have come as a society and as a specialty.

The SAEM Annual Meeting Program Archive

Take a trip back in time and see how far SAEM and the specialty of academic emergency medicine have come: visit SAEM's Annual Meeting Program Archive and peruse programs that predate the formation of SAEM itself, going back all the way to the March 6, 1970 Meeting of University Emergency Department Directors held at UAB in Birmingham, Alabama.

Residents and Students

Residents and medical students from across the country come to SAEM for guidance, advice, exploration and collaboration. The Residency and Fellowship Fair is a must for all EM students and residents. Institutions from every region come to the Fair to showcase their programs and help you choose the best fit for you.

Our Medical Student Symposium is a hot spot for students to learn about emergency medicine. Sit down with EM residency directors and ask whatever is on your mind. Figure out how to identify the right residency program and then learn how to get accepted!   

The Resident Leadership Forum is packed with advice on transitioning out of residency and into an academic career. This session has sold out at past meetings, so make sure to sign up early! There are also many didactics and abstracts throughout the week that you will find invaluable for your clinical and academic career.
