EuSEM's hosts in Vienna are the
emergency medicine societies of three nations: Germany, Austria and
Switzerland. These three nations share a single goal of introducing the
emergency medicine specialty in their countries. I expect our congress
will provide specialty knowledge and training which will generate a step
forward in this goal.
EuSEM's scientific congress committee
and congress organisers have created an impressive programme covering a
range of key medical, organisational and management themes in emergency
medicine. I am convinced that this congress offers the opportunity to
gain knowledge not available elsewhere: take this chance and join us in
European Society for Emergency Medicine (EuSEM)
