Dear Colleagues –

After a five-year pause, it is a pleasure for us to invite you to the 18th Stanford Symposium on Emergency Medicine in Hawaii. The 2017 meeting will take place March 6-10, 2017, at Wailea Beach on the beautiful island of Maui.

During the 17 years of our Hawaii symposium, several thousand of you have joined us on Kauai, Maui, and the Big Island, to learn the very latest advances in emergency medicine. If you were not among those we’ve met over the years in Hawaii, we bet you've always wanted to attend the Stanford Emergency Medicine Symposium - now you can!  

The conference format includes talks on trauma, critical care, shock, pediatrics, cardiology, wilderness medicine, and many other topics. There will also be a number of hands-on and engaging, optional CME skills development workshops including: pediatric critical care procedures, pediatric critical care simulation, and ultrasonography for lungs, kidneys, aorta, gallbladder, eyes, and deep vein thrombosis. We’ll even have a LLSA workshop to prepare you to pass the 2016 Patient Safety ABEM exams.

So join us in Maui on March 6-10, 2017, for the 18th Stanford Symposium on Emergency Medicine. Bring your family and learn about the latest advances in Emergency Medicine. Space is limited, so register early! We’re looking forward to your participation, greeting old friends, and meeting new ones during the rebirth of this exciting symposium.
