NAEMSE Educator Symposium

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Call for Presentations 2020

The National Association of EMS Educators Educational Symposium is the premier event for Emergency Medicine Educators. Each year, educators present a wide array of educational sessions, along with research papers and educational posters. Any Emergency Medicine Professional with an interest in emergency medicine or educational research are invited to submit session proposals for the 2020 conference.

This is an opportunity to share effective models, policies, research and to provide your colleagues with insights and best practices addressing many of issues that are faced in the classroom and community.

 The entry deadline is the end of the day (midnight) January 3, 2020. All applications should be completed through the form at the bottom of this page.

The annual symposium is the ONLY national educator’s conference created for anyone with an interest in EMS education.  We focus on strengthening the skills of new and established instructors in the field of Emergency Medical Services. Our participants include Pre-EMS providers, training officers, educational professionals, managers, and directors of training programs in the EMS arena. The association likes to offer a wide range of sessions at symposium that meet the diverse needs of EMS attendees, so we invite proposals from all levels of experience on all topics related to the EMS educator. This portal of learning offers a broad array of resources and services, such as forums, breakout sessions, general sessions, and panel discussions. Learning portals for this symposium have come to include classroom management, leadership, administrative issues, simulation and technology.
