5 days left to register for InspirED!

Good Day,

I would like to elaborate about the InpirED competition that will take place during the SEMA 15 conference.

Emergency Physicians are known to be great leaders, yet excellent team players. We are broad thinkers, yet quick decision makers. We are knowledgeable in every part of medical care, yet we are fully prepared to face uncertainty. The choice of EM as a career, and the practice of it both expose us to experiences unique to this field.

We would like to hear yours.

InspirED allows EM residents to move the audience through 10-minute powerful talks, it could be about a life-changing event, a story of success, a lesson from failure, and many other themes, left to your creativity.
The best talks will be presented to the SEMA audience, and awarded by a panel of local and international judges, with prizes up to a 1000$.

With only 5 days remaining until application is closed, you are welcome to submit the attached application form to

We look forward to hearing your talks!
