EEM 2014 Top 10 Video Countdown: #1 Why we do EM

As I write this post and watch this video one more time, I am struck by how powerful a 15-minute talk at Essentials of Emergency Medicine can be. Since its inception 13 years ago, EEM’s primary focus has always been on you, the EM practitioner. Not only did Mel want to change the way we learn, but more importantly, he wanted to provide a meaningful experience to celebrate our humanity – to learn, share, laugh, and cry as a family.

In 2014, Mel Herbert opened our conference with a very personal lecture titled, “Why we do EM.” Four simple words that elicit powerfully different responses from each of us. The answer is not so simple…it invariably revolves around a personal and intimate story. So, it’s only fitting that we end this countdown with the man who started it all.

Thank you for watching the 2014 countdown, and we hope all of you will join us in Las Vegas, on October 13-15, 2015, as we write the next chapter in the evolution of EEM.


Essentials… “It’s more than education.” ™

    Excellent. You know they tell us to tell our ED team of RN and techs thank you for your hard work every shift. It seems trite everyday but I know as a resident on a hard day how much it somehow helped . So Mel please keep saying “what you do matters ” because it helps me every shift and I pass this along to me team. Along with chocolate and hugs when needed.
