The Didactic Subcommittee of the SAEM Program Committee invites your proposals for didactic sessions in the areas of pediatric emergency medicine research, teaching, and practice for presentation at SAEM20, the Society’s annual meeting, May 12–15 in Denver.
Should your didactic proposal be accepted, you will have the opportunity to present your pediatric EM research at the largest forum of its kind for the presentation of original education and research in academic emergency medicine.
What we are looking for in a superior didactic presentation:
• Overall quality and organization of the submission
• Appropriateness for requested time
• Quality and reputation of the speakers/facilitators
• Comparison and quality of similar submissions
• Audience comments from similar sessions in the past
• Lecture style encouraging interactivity
To assist you…
The SAEM Program Committee is hosting a webinar designed to share best practices for didactic submissions for SAEM20. During each webinar, the Didactics Subcommittee co-chairs will provide guidance about how to enhance didactic submissions and offer examples of best submissions from previous years. The webinar will be offered on Aug. 30, Sept. 3, and Sept. 4 from 3-4 p.m. CT. If you are interested in joining us, you may sign up here. For additional submission tips please see our new Best Practices for Didactics.
