Emergency Medicine Data Institute Activities at Scientific Assembly

Fall is an exciting time of year. It brings about cyclical events such as cooler weather, football season, baseball playoffs, and pumpkin-spiced everything. Despite one's sentiments for pumpkin-spiced treats, we could agree that fall also brings gathering. There is no better event to gather at than ACEP's Scientific Assembly. This is when friendships are rekindled, and members discuss the latest topics or debate the greatest Rocky movie. Scientific Assembly is a spiritual focus of all things Emergency Medicine, where prominent leaders in EM discuss pressing issues important to ACEP's members and how emergency physicians can forge their way forward in an ever-changing world. During the four-day event, the Emergency Medicine Data Institute will have a significant presence, hosting and presenting exciting talks and events.

As you plan out your personal calendars, we want to share key sessions to attend in which the Emergency Medicine Data Institute will lead and host discussions.
