First-Time Attendee Meet-Up

Sunday, April 8  |  11:30am-12:30pm

We invite first-time attendees to join us for a welcome meet-up. We hope that you will find AAEM18 to be an engaging meeting and come away with both increased clinical knowledge and lasting connections. To enhance those connections, we invite you to meet fellow first-time attendees, AAEM leadership, and AAEM18 educational planners at an informal meet-up prior to the start of the conference.

This is a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with the AAEM18 meeting, learn about all of the social and educational events, network with fellow first-timers, and ask any questions you may have. See you there!

Tales from the ER
We all have stories to tell. They are sometimes funny or inappropriate or heartbreaking. Others affirm our decision to become doctors in the first place. Come to an evening which promises to showcase the great range of human experience — to enlighten minds, expose vulnerabilities, and quietly suggest ways to overcome the challenges we all face each day.
