Emergency Medicine Update

January 26-29, 2014

Stowe Mountain Lodge, Stowe, VT

The 2014 Conference was a huge success. Please join us next year: January 25-28, 2015 at the Stowe Mountain Lodge.

Overview

This event will discuss a variety of timely, practical issues that are encountered in the emergency department on a daily basis. Lectures will be engaging, sometimes controversial, and present the audience with examples of both successes and failures in emergency medicine. Changes don’t always equal advances and advancement doesn’t always mean change. At the end of this program, participants should be able to distinguish between advancement and change in the emergency department in a relaxed, family-oriented environment where learning does equal fun!

This program has been designed to include all emergency medicine professionals including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, trauma nurses, residents, and emergency medicine technicians.
