New This Year

What sets SAEM apart from other emergency medicine conferences is the quality and quantity of original research presentations and educational innovations from experts in the field. This year SAEM will present hundreds of didactics and abstracts, plus all-new innovations, Ignite! sessions, hands-on workshops, and more! Plan your itinerary using the Program Planner, or view the Schedule At-A-Glance for an overview of the week. More sessions will be added leading up to the meeting.

Based on feedback from new presenters and last year’s attendees, SAEM has renovated the electronic poster process entirely for 2016. The number of ePosters has been scaled back this year to focus on quality over quantity, plus a completely new and improved physical layout will allow for:

  • More time to listen to research presentations and ask questions of presenters
  • More networking opportunities with both session moderators and presenters
  • Extra time to stroll between posters and hear the presentations that are most valuable to you
  • More session rooms with fewer ePoster screens per room

The Annual Meeting Program Committee is confident that the ePoster scientific presentations at the 2016 SAEM Annual Meeting in New Orleans will be the best ever.

Residents and Students

Residents and medical students from across the country attend SAEM’s Annual Meeting for guidance, advice, exploration, and collaboration, and this year promises more of the same! There are many sessions designed especially for budding academicians who can make the most of their SAEM16 experience by attending them all! Apply for the Medical Student Ambassadors program or one of EMRA’s travel awards to receive free travel to SAEM16.

SAEM16’s Medical Student Symposium is a one-stop shop for students considering EM as their specialty. Students have an opportunity to meet with residency directors to ask questions and learn all they need to know about a career in emergency medicine (EM), from how to identify the right residency program to how to get accepted.

The Residency and Fellowship Fair is a must for all EM students and residents. Medical schools from every region come to the Fair to showcase their programs and help students and residents select the program that is the best fit. This is a high-energy event that fills the room to capacity every year, so get there early and plan to stay until the end!

The Resident Academic 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 now!

SAEM has a reception just for students and residents! The Resident and Student Advisory Committee is hosting the RSAC Reception at the Bourbon Cowboy on New Orlean’s famous Bourbon Street. Enjoy a boot scootin’ good time in a true honky-tonk saloon, with the best beats and mechanical bull-ridin' the Big Easy has to offer and an opportunity to network with peers in a fun and informal atmosphere!

Between sessions, attendees have the chance to refresh their minds and catch up with colleagues by attending the many social and sporting events SAEM16 has to offer, including the SAEMF FUND Run 5K , Dodgeball Tournament, and the Opening and Closing Receptions.

In addition, didactic and abstract presentations provide another invaluable benefit to attendees’ clinical and academic careers.

You are the future of academic EM and we are excited to have you join us for SAEM16! If you have any questions about how to maximize your time in New Orleans, please contact us.
