Dear Colleagues,

I am glad to invite you to the 6th Eurasian Congress on Emergency Medicine to be held in conjunction with the 14th Turkish Emergency Medicine Congress. As you are already aware, the Eurasian Congress on Emergency Medicine which is traditionally held biennially aims to bring the emergency medicine specialists from Asia and Europe. We will host our guests in this nice congress again at the Regnum Carya Hotel Belek which collected a very positive feedback over all participants at the ACEM 2017 Congress.

Apart from the regular congresses, our goal this year is to organize a brand new congress with the debate presentations which the trainers and participants will have more interaction and where the experienced academicians will meet with small groups of audience to discuss their expertise in the master fields of interest. We have formulated a scientific program enabling the participants to have interactive exchange of views one-on-one with the lecturers instead of just listening to them in huge meeting halls together with hundreds of people.

Emergency Medicine has been recognized as a major medical specialty in Turkey for over 20 years.
The emergency medicine specialty in Turkey continues its development regularly and each year more emergency medicine specialists take their place in the national healthcare system. Our community which is getting bigger and bigger is our biggest source of motivation for the congresses that Emergency Medicine Association of Turkey (EMAT) is trying to organize better each time. From the very beginning of this process, the Emergency Medicine Association of Turkey has always been the biggest supporter of all emergency medical professionals. Publications of our association and our continuous medical education activities are the main reference source for Emergency Medicine Training institutions, Emergency Medicine specialists and practitioners, and for Emergency Medicine residents.

In EACEM 2018, we will be present with the national and international renowned lecturers and trainers who you will enjoy to listen and communicate. I wish the congress will be a platform where close dialogues will be fostered between participants, an exchange of knowledge and ideas are set, collaborations are established and most importantly the friendships are intensified. We would be delighted to welcome you in a socially enjoyable, scientifically rich, comfortable and warm environment where you will feel completely at home. Your participation and your contribution will be our strength.

Best regards,

Prof. Ersin AKSAY, M.D.
President - Emergency Medicine Association of Turkey
