Organizing Societies


The American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) is a non-profit democratic organization of 8,000 members. The Academy supports the establishment and recognition of emergency medicine internationally as an independent specialty and is committed to its role in the advancement of emergency medicine worldwide.

AAEM has been co-sponsoring international meetings for many years promoting the specialty of emergency medicine and offering a wonderful opportunity for academic and scientific exchange. AAEM is also partnering internationally to offer academic and scientific exchange across the world. AAEM entered in to a 10-year agreement with the Sociedad Argentina de Emergencias (SAE) in offering a jointly sponsored biennial meeting of the Inter-American Emergency Medicine Congress (IAEMC). In 2012, AAEM and the Korean Society of Emergency Medicine (KSEM) held the first Pan-Pacific Emergency Medicine Congress (PEMC) in Seoul, South Korea.
