wellness innovation plenary session

On behalf of the ALiEM Wellness Think Tank (WTT), we are thrilled to announce our partnership again with Essentials of Emergency Medicine (EEM). On May 13, 2019 during the WTT Resident Wellness Day (an EEM preday event featuring acclaimed author Dr. James Dahle of White Coat Investor fame), we also will launch the first-ever Wellness Innovation Plenary Session focusing on residency-level initiatives. This is your chance, as a resident, to give an oral presentation at a national conference. Deadline: January 7, 2019.

Wellness Innovation Plenary Session Event Details

The Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas
May 13, 2019
Preday event to Essentials of Emergency Medicine

Also are you going to be attending the SAEM 2019 meeting already? This is a special year where both these conferences will both be in Las Vegas in the same week.

Has your residency tried something new to improve resident wellness? Was it a #WellnessWin or a #WellnessFlop? Submit your abstract detailing your #WellnessWin or #WellnessFlop. There are 10 oral presentation speaker slots (5 winners from each category). Let’s not reinvent the wheel by learning from each others’ successes and setbacks. Often setbacks can lead to the most informed improvements.

All other quality entries will be eligible to submit a digital poster.


All current residents are welcome to submit an abstract to the Wellness Innovation Plenary Session.
