Message from our CEO

This year, again, the emergency medicine community has been an example of the best that medicine has to offer society. Now more than ever we deserve to recharge and reconnect with our colleagues.

Essentials is back in 2022, live in-person and virtually. For the first time in many years we're headed to San Francisco!

Like we have been doing for nearly two decades, Essentials 2022 has been crafted minute by minute to offer the best education, camaraderie, and entertainment possible. This year is not to be missed and we hope you can join us for the funnest and most impactful conference of the year.

You deserve it. We cannot wait to see you.
