EM faculty presented and led numerous classes, presentations, and workshops throughout AAEM24, the 30th Scientific Assembly of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine, April 27-May 1 in Austin, TX. On every day of the assembly, our faculty members taught courses, directed workshops, and moderated discussions for the national audience of more than 1,000 emergency physicians, residents, and students. 

On April 27: 

  • Assistant Professor Alexis Salerno, MD, hosted the Sim SonoSleuthing Case Competition, in which teams were challenged to use ultrasound in their examinations of patient models and arrive at a correct diagnosis. 
  • Professor Mike Winters, MD, MPH, directed a full-day course on “Resuscitation for Emergency Physicians,” with help from Assistant Professor Kami Hu, MD, as faculty for sessions on “Mastering ED Mechanical Ventilation,” “Critical Interventions in Sepsis Resuscitation,” and “Caring for the Critically Ill ICU Boarder.”

The next blog entries will highlight UMEM activities at the assembly from April 28 to May 1.
