    What to Expect:

    This year, The Edge: Scientific Assembly brings you a didactic schedule like no other! The slate of speakers and topics showcases a combination of fast-paced rapid fire lectures, in-depth exploration of hot topics, the latest updates in new technology and research.

    This is your chance to engage with over 1,000 of your fellow emergency medical professionals; to learn from nationally-renowned leaders in medical innovation; to improve your techniques with hands-on skills labs; to enjoy social activities with friends and colleagues like the Welcome Reception and FOEM Legacy Gala.

    New This Year:

    A new series of engaging break-out lectures will enable you to customize your experience and delve deeper into the issues central to your practice. Sign up for the next level of the Faculty Development Track; go in-depth with the new EMS Medical Director’s Track; stay an extra day to take advantage of new opportunities made possible through a partnership with the American College of Osteopathic Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Check back often for new updates!

    After a successful launch at The Edge: Spring Seminar, this fall’s conference will engage members with ACOEPdigital, your hub for speaker materials, pre and post-tests, attendee lists, customized agendas, and much more—all accessible on your phone, tablet, or laptop.

    Check back often as new details become available, and explore what makes this conference unlike any other!

    Charm, elegance, and the essence of Italy—all three infuse every aspect of the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. This unique resort overlooks a cobblestone piazza and picturesque lake where a water taxi shuttles guests to the adjacent Universal Studios Orlando. As a Universal Studios property, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel is close enough to all of the activity of the parks to provide ample opportunities for adventure, and yet secluded enough for a quiet respite after a busy day of exciting lectures and competitions.

    ACOEP has made arrangements for a block of rooms at a reduced rate of $205/night, not including taxes and fees. This rate is available until September 25, or until the room block sells out.

    Due to the skyrocketing popularity of ACOEP’s conferences, room blocks have been selling out quickly and ACOEP strongly advises attendees to book early.
