Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the Emirates Society of Emergency Medicine (ESEM), I would like to extend the warmest welcome to you as we start preparing the fourth edition of the Emirates Society of Emergency Medicine Scientific Conference (ESEM17) which will be held on 6-9 December 2017 in United Arab Emirates.
With three successful and rapidly growing editions and more than 1100 delegates, 30+ participating countries, and an exceptional scientific program delivered by over 100 reputable local and international speakers; ESEM becoming the largest and best Emergency Medicine Conference in the Middle East. The conference has been comprehensively organized to capture the excellent innovations in Emergency Medicine, primarily in the areas of pre-hospital care, Trauma, Toxicology, Disaster Medicine, Pediatric EM, Emergency Nursing, Simulations, Public Health, Research Updates and other sub branches related to the field of emergency medicine. We are also proud to continually improve ESEM's special tracks like 'Pick a Clue' and 'The Fulcrum' debates. We are also very focused on improving our participants' skills by introducing Hands-on workshops throughout the 4 days which we highly recommend to everyone.
With our strong belief in the importance of research in EM, specially in our region, the facilitation of abstract submissions will still be continued by the Science Abstract Review committee and we will be publishing winning abstracts in PubMed-Indexed Journal similar to last year with hopefully a bigger number this year. We owe a deep sense of gratitude to all our sponsors for their generous support, also to our dedicated teams, and supporting societies, for their priceless contributions and advice in planning and organizing this worthwhile conference.
I hope that you can see this gathering as an opportunity to expand your knowledge and skills and at the same time meet colleagues from various countries in a very dynamic atmosphere. Lastly, we hope to see you with us this year and to be part of another success!
