Essentials of EM 2013 was a great time! More than 1500 people experienced it live in San Francisco or streamed it live online. The largest single audience for an EM conference in 2013 anywhere in the world was Essentials of EM 2013. The entire conference with over 100 lectures is now available at EssentialsofEM.com. Over the next few weeks we will count down the top 5 educational lectures as well as the top 5 entertaining and inspiring talks given at Essentials of EM 2013. We think you’ll agree, this lively look at ten of the “best of the best” will reaffirm Essentials of EM as the leader in emergency medicine education.
