Below you will find a timetable for EMS2018 with all the important times.
We promise that EMS2018 will not be a duplicate of EMS2017, but none the less we have still kept some of the sessions from the last two conferences:
- The Best abstract session and the ‘Most important EMS articles 2017/2018’: Two classics from the previous EMS-congresses, but this year the sessions will, based on your evaluations, take place in much larger session rooms.
- Prehospital obstetrics: We will repeat the success from last year and make it even better!
- Burnout in EMS: A lot of you really appreciated this session and we believe that it is highly important and deserves to be a topic in focus.
- EMS Championship: EMS2018 wouldn’t be a proper European EMS congress without the thrilling EMS Championship, read more about the games here.
The scientific committee will work tirelessly throughout the following months to get a complete program ready for you and aim to have a program that is as good as finished in December, with just a little room for minor changes.
