Onsite Program

NEW for 2019: Choose your Own ED-Venture!

This year we’ve revamped the conference and created a brand-new structure for a customizable experience with more interactive, hands-on opportunities at no additional cost! Take a look at the conference’s new structure below.

April 8th and 9th

Ease into the week with two days of general lectures.

April 10th and 11th*

The third and fourth days of the conference will be tailored to your own “ED-Venture.” These days will include two hours of lectures followed by two hours of hands-on, interactive sessions on any TWO topics (one per day) of your choosing below**:

This course teaches techniques on how to detect subtle nuances of EKGs, providing better insight in identifying early ischemic changes and mimickers of myocardial infarction. These key techniques will be taught through the review of case studies and EKG Presentations.

Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (Part A) / 2019 Reimbursement Pearls (Part B)
This track offers 2 distinct topics. The OMM portion is ideal for the physician seeking to incorporate or increase the use of manipulation as an effective treatment option for a wide variety of ED complaints. During this segment, learners will determine which patients will derive the greatest benefit from OMM, and which specific techniques should be applied.

The Reimbursement portion is designed for all EM Physicians – it teaches clinicians how to optimize their reimbursement for the services they provide. Attendees will learn how to chart smarter and realize optimal reimbursement for their services, including Critical Care, High-Yield Procedures, EKG / Cardiac Monitor Interpretations, Foundational E/M Encounters and more.


Pediatric emergency care is challenging for the ER Provider. This track provides pediatric bedside ultrasound techniques which will cover abdominal discomfort, as well as the discussion of clinical pitfalls which are typically seen while caring for the young patient. Head-to-toe case-by-case examples of application will be shown to help decrease the recurrence of these pitfalls.

*Upon registering for Spring Seminar, you must select one topic per day for the 10th and 11th. Please note that each topic has limited space and you may not choose the same topic for both days.
