Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the Emirates Society of Emergency Medicine (ESEM), I would like to extend the warmest welcome to you as we start preparing for the 20th International Conference on Emergency Medicine (ICEM21), which will be held virtually from 8th to 12th June 2021.
The United Arab Emirates is thrilled to host this prestigious event, and the committees have been working vigilantly towards our theme of “Bringing Emergency Medicine Together”. We truly believe, now more than ever, it is vital for us to join hands to share experiences, knowledge and skills in and around the conference to develop our specialty.
Given ongoing concerns around the Covid-19 considering everyone health and safety, and to ensure the conference experience remains of high standard, we decided to conduct the International Conference on Emergency Medicine 2021 as virtual edition, everyone can join us online at the comfort of home, office, or even during your shift…wherever you are to enjoy the virtual live learning experience.
The conference has been comprehensively organized to capture the excellent innovations in Emergency Medicine, primarily in the areas of: Trauma, Emergency Nursing, Career Development, Military Medicine, Fundamentals of EM, Wellness, Administration, ED Operations, Disaster Medicine, Simulation, Sepsis, Cardiovascular, Pediatrics, Imaging, Abdominal, Neurovascular, Psych and other sub branches related to the field of Emergency Medicine. We are also proud to include ESEM's special tracks like 'Pick a Clue' and 'The Fulcrum' debates. Moreover, we are also very focused on improving our participants' skills by introducing pre-conference workshops on the pre-conference day (8th June 2021) which we highly recommend to everyone. We highly encourage you to invite every emergency provider you know to come and join us for this special conference. We are so keen to bring EM together!
With our strong belief in the importance of research in EM, especially in our region, the facilitation of abstract submissions will still be continued by the Abstract Review Committee and we will be publishing winning abstracts on peer-reviewed journal.
On behalf of the Emirates society of emergency Medicine, I would like to welcome you all again to ICEM21 and look forward to having you with us in this international EM gathering.
