Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting


19th Annual SAEM Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting

Georgetown University School of Medicine

Washington, DC

Saturday, February 28, 2015

SAEM is pleased to announce that the 19th Annual SAEM Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting will be held in Washington, DC on the campus of Georgetown University School of Medicine on Saturday, February 28, 2015.  The Edward B. Bunn, SJ Intercultural Center will serve as main lecture hall for the meeting. This year’s meeting will be hosted by the Georgetown University/ Medstar Washington Hospital Center Department of Emergency Medicine. This is the first EM research meeting of the year and a great way to test the presentation of your new research, more than 10 weeks prior to the SAEM Annual Meeting, without excluding your abstract from consideration for presentation in San Diego.

Submissions are now closed.

Medical Student Session

We will also hold a medical student forum with program directors from EM residency programs from across the region. This is an excellent opportunity for senior students to meet and talk with the regional program directors in a relaxed setting and get the answers that can enhance your interview.  It is  also a great time for first- through third-year students interested in EM to learn more about the specialty and navigating the pathway into EM residency.

Medical Student SimWars

All students are invited to compete for prizes and the coveted title of Mid-Atlantic SimWars Champion in an afternoon simulation competition.  The winning team receives the Mid-Atlantic Cup and shirts for its members.


This meeting will use social media, such as comments to moderators via Twitter, with an all-oral format for abstracts. Presentations will cover a broad variety of research, including small and pilot studies by trainees, young investigators, and senior faculty.  Our focus is to foster EM research and clinical work in trauma, critical care, cardiopulmonary disease, simulation, and clinical decision-making, as well as focused abstract presentations in pediatric EM, ultrasound, pre-hospital and disaster medicine and patient safety issues.  Of course, all abstracts from our regional and national programs are also invited. 

There will be brief TedMed-type talks of 12 minutes each on specific new research areas, to be solicited from attendees, and national speakers in a brief pro/con format on such topics as "EMS: All ALS or All BLS?"; "Who Should Run Trauma Resus? EM vs. Surgery"; "Intubation: Video vs. Direct"; "Sports Med: Role of the EP vs. Ortho"; and "EM Resuscitation: Research and Clinical Updates."
