Weekly emergency medicine (EM) residency conferences are not exempt from the #CancelEverything movement as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Residency program leaders are in uncharted water, quickly pivoting to find alternative solutions to live, in-person conference sessions. We at ALiEM emphathize with these hardships and want to help. We announce ALiEM Connect, a live educational telecast with a concurrent moderated backchannel discussion on HIPAA-compliant Slack. We want to help.


  • Wed, March 25, 2020 at 8 am-10 am PST (11 am-1 pm EST)


Can I join if I am not an EM resident?

  • Although this event targets primarily EM residents, anyone can view the livestream event for free. Slack account access will granted only to EM residency programs who RSVP at [email protected].

When is the next ALiEM Connect event?

  • Currently this is a one-time event given the costs and large team effort needed. We plan to assess whether the ALiEM Connect event was valuable, worthwhile, and cost-effective afterwards. Stay tuned!

Exclusive Sponsor

We are honored that the American Board of Emergency Medicine is our exclusive sponsor for this event. Representatives will be on the ALiEM Connect Slack account to answer resident questions in during these uncertain COVID-19 times regarding board certification.
