An attending physician at New York Hospital Queens, Sassan Naderi, MD, handles cases related to emergency medicine. Dr. Sassan Naderi also stays actively involved with the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM).
At the beginning of each year, the AAEM hosts its Scientific Assembly. In 2015, the event took place in Austin, Texas, at the Hilton Austin. Attendees listened to expert speakers present on topics, such as why emergency doctors need to be palliative care specialists, how to run a code using ultrasound, and what to look for in orthopedic injuries to reduce risk. Simon Carley, an emergency medicine consultant with expertise in emergency diagnostics and incident planning, served as the keynote speaker.
AAEM aims to host the same caliber of education at the 22nd Annual Scientific Assembly. Commencing on February 17, 2016, the forum heads to Las Vegas, Nevada, where attendees will enjoy five days of learning and networking at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
