Welcome to the SAEM23 Annual Meeting!

Welcome to Austin!

Just as music is a huge part of Austin's DNA, education and research are part of SAEM’s strong legacy and what makes our annual meeting THE premier event in academic emergency medicine. We invite you to create an SAEM23 soundtrack that’s all your own, by compiling a playlist from hundreds of sessions, including:
  • More than a dozen half- and full-day workshops that aim to strengthen knowledge and skills in specific topic areas
  • Dynamic didactics from the best minds in academic EM
  • High-quality, cutting-edge research
  • Ground-breaking, practice-changing plenary sessions
  • Two keynote addresses by renowned speaker-influencers
  • Focused educational forums that offer something for everyone, from seasoned faculty to medical students just starting their careers
  • Speed Mentoring and Speed Mentoring for Medical Educator sessions for residents and medical students giving them access to successful leaders of EM in an intimate setting

A Texas-Sized Welcome

Once you've eaten your weight in barbecue, heard a band that's this close to blowing up, and slammed a Lone Star or two at the city’s hottest honky tonks, you’ll understand why Austin is not only one of America’s the fastest-growing and best cities to visit, it’s also the perfect place to hold an annual meeting that promises to be as big-hearted and boast-worthy as the state of Texas. 

The Lone Star State's shining capital is waiting with open arms to welcome you and so are we! On behalf of the Program Committee and SAEM leadership, we can’t wait to see you in Austin!
