With a specialty as unpredictable as emergency medicine, how can you be expected to satisfy your continuing education requirements with a simple online course? Your entire career is contingent upon the unexpected accidents and medical emergencies happening in your own communities, so why not let satisfying those requirements reflect that exciting unpredictability? Even though online CME resources can provide ample information about the latest research in a specific field, nothing compares to actually experimenting with new technologies directly at a continuing education medical conference and being able to leave the sessions with newly-developed skills.

This is exactly why traveling to a multi-day conference focused entirely on emergency medicine will be one of the best ways to tackle the bulk of your physician CME requirements. Not only will you be able to learn all about new technologies and medical techniques of your specialty, but you will also have the opportunity to network with physicians from across the country while exploring a new city.

Luckily, there are hundreds of physician CME conferences happening across the United States every year and we’ve rounded up some of the top picks happening in 2019.
