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.

Essentials… “It’s more than education.” ™

EEM 2014 Top 10 Video Countdown: #5 Delayed Sequence Intubation

Dr. Scott Weingart breaks the top 5 of our countdown this year. It’s really no surprise when you lead off your talk by saying, “The laryngoscope can be a murder weapon.” That is the sort of educational gold you get, lecture after lecture, when you register for the Essentials of EM 2014 Digital Package. Scott’s case-based, high yield, and downright spectacular EEM 2014 talk on Delayed Sequence Intubation is a must watch. This, along with 100 additional lectures and over 30 CME hours, makes EEM 2014 the best value in medical education. Now, see for yourself what everyone is talking about, from the legend himself!
