Dear colleagues,

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the ACEP SIM Training Course, scheduled to take place May 4-6.

Like all of you, we have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its repercussions across the world. Your health is our top priority, and at the same time, you are the most valuable human resource on the front lines of this pandemic. Canceling this training allows you to focus on what’s most important right now: caring for your patients.   

Even though we can’t meet in person at the SIM Course, our emergency medicine community will take our conversations online and continue to help one another by sharing knowledge and lessons learned. Scroll down for COVID-19 resources.

Cancellation Details


You have the option to receive a registration refund, or you can apply those funds to ACEP20 or SIM Course 2021. Indicate your preference through this form, and our member care team will process your request within 30 days.


Please reach out to your hotel directly. If you planned to stay at the official meeting hotel, contact Embassy Suites by Hilton at Tampa Downtown Convention Center at 813-769-8300.

Please contact your airlines, rental car companies and other travel providers directly.
