Annual Scientific Meetings
Winter Symposium
Faculty Scientific Meetings
The Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of Australasian emergency physicians in an environment which facilitates professional networking. The ASM rotates around cities of Australia and New Zealand, and is organised by a local committee of FACEMs and trainees.
The Annual General Meeting of ACEM and College Ceremony both precede the ASM, including the presentation of prizes, awards and honours.

Can't make it to an ASM? You can watch videos of key presentations at recent ASMs on our website.

The Winter Symposium is held every second year, in a regional location of either Australia or New Zealand. This event is smaller than the Annual Scientific Meeting so allows for more interactive sessions and networking opportunities. Delegates often come early or stay-on to enjoy what the hosting region has to offer.

ACEM Faculties hold their own scientific meetings annually or biennially. These meetings are a great networking oppotunity for the local faculty and members from other faculties are also very welcome to attend.

Some of these meetings are run in collaboration with other organisations. You can also see further information about the Faculties here.
