EEM 2014 Top 10 Video Countdown: #1 Why we do EM

As I write this post and watch this video one more time, I am struck by how powerful a 15-minute talk at Essentials of Emergency Medicine can be. Since its inception 13 years ago, EEM’s primary focus has always been on you, the EM practitioner. Not only did Mel want to change the way we learn, but more importantly, he wanted to provide a meaningful experience to celebrate our humanity – to learn, share, laugh, and cry as a family.

In 2014, Mel Herbert opened our conference with a very personal lecture titled, “Why we do EM.” Four simple words that elicit powerfully different responses from each of us. The answer is not so simple…it invariably revolves around a personal and intimate story. So, it’s only fitting that we end this countdown with the man who started it all.

Thank you for watching the 2014 countdown, and we hope all of you will join us in Las Vegas, on October 13-15, 2015, as we write the next chapter in the evolution of EEM.

Dr. David Schriger and this thought provoking look into “Whose risk are you managing?” are number four on our EEM 2014 top 10 list. The key question David asks the EEM 2014 attendees is are you providing the “ideal amount of medical care to your patients” or is fear driving the practice of emergency medicine? This is the quintessential EEM talk, insightful and philosophical and 100% focused on doing what is right for patients and for the heart and soul of the practitioner. 30 hours of amazing CME for this talk and the rest of EEM 2014 is available now with your EEM 2014 Digital package purchase.
