This exciting, state-of-the-art conference has been designed to provide Emergency Medical Services personnel with educational opportunities that reflect current medical knowledge and practice.  The goal is to give the provider the tools to enhance patient care and reinforce procedures critical for smooth and efficient on-scene operations. The conference offers over 100 sessions, presented by subject matter experts.  Sessions are divided into clearly defined tracks for the EMS administrator, EMS educator, basic and advanced life support provider, school nurse, and those with particular interests in pediatrics, emergency preparedness, safety/wellness or quality improvement so that individuals may pursue specific areas of interest.  The conference is designed for flexibility to allow you to select continuing education topics in the areas that are important to you.  

 This National Conference is more than just classroom sessions! Come cheer for your favorite team as they face the human simulator at the annual “National SIM Competition”.  Watch as BLS and ALS teams go head-to-head managing critically ill or injured patients while trying to clinch the number one spot and bragging rights as the top team of the National SIM Competition!
In conjunction with the National Conference on EMS, the annual NJ EMS Awards Program is held on Friday evening of the conference.  This program is a way for the Office of Emergency Medical Services and the New Jersey EMS Council to recognize individuals for their hard work and dedication to the provision of emergency medical services in New Jersey.
EMS scientific assemby: This event will provide an opportunity to exhibit an abstract poster to approximately 800 prehospital clinicians attending this event. The research must be of interest and educational value to the specialty of prehospital emergency care.   

The conference is held in Atlantic City, conveniently located minutes from the world famous boardwalk giving registrants the opportunity to enjoy the city while attending this premiere educational opportunity.
