The South Eastern Emergency Medicine Annual Conference (SEEMAC) is an annual education event hosted by the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s Department of Emergency Medicine and will take place April 3-6, 2016, at Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans, Louisiana. This conference was developed for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and paramedics who desire to participate in an intensive course in the latest updates in emergency care.  During the course we hope to not only increase your confidence in providing the most up to date care in emergency medicine, but also optimize the quality care patients receive across the region. The faculty participating in this course are board certified in their specialty and considered experts in the topic they are presenting. Not only will CE credit be offered for each discipline, but also interactive workshops including a cadaver lab, difficult airway lab, and ultrasound lab will be taught by faculty that are nationally known in their field of expertise. This is the second year running of this innovative and intense conference. Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:

  • incorporate information into practice to reduce the likelihood of misdiagnosis in common emergencies

  • discuss medical/legal issues specific to emergency medicine

  • identify history, physical, and testing strategies to provide evidenced based care to those presenting to the emergency department

  • recognize pediatric specific presentations, assessments, diagnosis, and treatments

  • incorporate knowledge into standard practice based on the current literature for patients presenting to emergency departments

  • enhance advanced clinical skills needed in emergency medicine

  • identify the difficult airway and provide effective airway management

  • Cadaver Lab

    The cadaver lab workshop provides an invaluable opportunity for participants to perform various emergency medicine procedures on actual human subjects in a controlled environment. 

    Multiple teaching stations are set up with small group, hands-on instruction led by experts in emergency medicine.  Participants are provided the opportunity to observe and perform various procedures on human subject, such as:

    • Intubation

    • Cricothyrotomy

    • Open thoracotomy

    • Needle decompression

    • IO

    • Pericardiocentesis

      The airway lab is designed to provide participants with an opportunity to develop critical life-saving airway management skills through applied learning.  Faculty teaching this course are experts in the area of airway management education.

      Multiple teaching stations are set up to help participants learn to identify, recognize, understand, and confidently manage patients with difficult airways.

    • Ultrasound lab 

      The ultrasound workshop offers training to providers interested in learning bedside ultrasound technique.  This lab includes both didactic and hands-on scanning training using high quality ultrasounds, led by a team of experienced Emergency Medicine physicians skilled in ED ultrasound.
