Managing Medical Emergencies

Please join us for the 28th Managing Medical Emergencies. This clinically based conference gets rave reviews every year, and you will not be disappointed this year, with an agenda designed by participant feedback. We are once again including more topics than the average conference, using a shorter, more clinically focused format. This year hits hard with 4 Critical Care/Emergency Medicine lectures yet remains broad-based with pediatrics, neurology, management, airway, and basics (with a twist) like electrolytes. Many of the talks are case-based, delivered by a top notch, specialist faculty, more than half of whom are dual boarded.

In response to a continued desire, we are bringing back our excellent hands on ultrasound component with an opportunity to have one-on-one training in small groups, and to choose from three ultrasound skills. You will leave this conference with knowledge and skills you can take to your next shift.

This is education worth having.
