The National Association of EMS Educators' Annual Educational Symposium is the premier event for Emergency Medicine Educators. Each year, more than 45 faculty members present 45 educational sessions, 12 research papers, and educational posters are presented at the annual educational symposium.

NAEMSE is soliciting session proposals for the 2017 Annual Educational Symposium to be held August 7-12, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

The annual symposium is the ONLY national educator’s conference created for all with an interest in Emergency Medical education.  We focus on strengthening the skills of new and provide a venue for the established instructor in the field of Emergency Medical Services. Our participants include EMS Instructors,  Pre-EMS providers, training officers, educational professionals, managers, and directors of training programs in the EMS arena.
