The ICEM 2010 scientific program will cover multiple aspects of emergency medicine around the world.
“This conference provides a chance to learn how emergency medicine is practiced all around in the world,” said Dr. Chris Tomaszewski, ACEP’s representative to ICEM. “Representatives from more than 30 countries will tell their stories—how great emergency medicine can be practiced regardless of environment.”
Preconference courses will allow physicians to improve their clinical skills in areas such as airway, pediatric resuscitation, and emergency cardiology. An EMS directors’ workshop will be taught by faculty members from around the globe.
Not only does the conference offer exceptional training and networking, the island of Singapore promises adventure and beauty. As a gateway to the Far East, Singapore is a thoroughly modern island, completely accessible thanks to an extensive public transportation system. Conference attendees will find incomparable shopping venues and diverse ethnic restaurants, as well as numerous outdoor activities involving sandy beaches, a patch of rainforest, and even a night safari offered by the famous Singapore Zoo.
