Welcome

EUSEM Prague 2019 gefreubel

The 13th European Emergency Medicine Congress, held in the city of Prague is the major educational activity organized in Europe for emergency medicine (EM).  Every year the Congress puts together professionals from the in and out of the hospital EM.
At the congress, you will have the opportunity to share your experiences with colleagues from more than 70 different countries, broaden your knowledge through the presentations of more than 200 leaders in the different fields. Participants will be exposed to the state of the art of the actual hot topics of EM. On-hands education is a relevant part of the meeting, encouraging your individual or team participation in the different training course and simulation activities.  
On this occasion, EUSEM’s 25th anniversary was celebrated and we are proud to say that this International non-for-profit Organization is growing in the right direction to reach its objectives. Actually EUSEM is representing more than 37 National Societies. We are close to reaching our main mission, the development of emergency medicine as specialty of its own. At EU level, all member countries have the specialty, at different stages of evolution, except for three with good perspectives at least in two for the following year.
The EUSEM annual Congress offers an extraordinary opportunity for several of our goals; it is a melting pot for research and educational projects on an international level. It promotes international collaboration in the field of Emergency Medicine, facilitating practice and knowledge transfer. The meeting creates the seeds for networking creation and cooperation between national associations for Emergency Medicine.
