Welcome Message

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Emirates Society of Emergency Medicine (ESEM), I would like to welcome you all to our third edition of the Emirates Society of Emergency Medicine Scientific Conference (ESEM16), which will be held on 7 - 10 December 2016 in our beautiful Emirate, Dubai.

After two very successful editions, with more than 1050 delegates from 40+ countries attending, an outstanding scientific program with over 100 high caliber local and international speakers, ESEM became the largest Emergency Medicine conference in the region. This conference has been carefully designed to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest developments in Emergency Medicine, primarily in the areas of pre - hospital care, Trauma, Toxicology, Disaster Medicine, Pediatric EM, Emergency Nursing, Research updates and many more.We are also proud to continue improving ESEM's special tracks like "pick a clue" and the "fulcrum" debates which have been a great success. Taking the enthusiasm forward, our committees are working towards putting a top class program to the physicians and other healthcare providers within the field of Emergency Medicine.

The Scientific Abstract Review committee will be continuing to facilitate abstract submissions to empower and enrich the research experience regionally. We would like to express our sincere thanks to all our sponsors for their generous support, also to our dedicated teams, supporting societies, for their untiring help, support and advice in planning and arranging this conference.

We hope that you will like the conference and that your interaction with your colleagues from many different countries will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas and will be personally rewarding. We also hope that you will enjoy your visit and we look forward to welcoming you in Dubai, to learn, network and be part of our success!

Kindest regards
