More about ASEM:

The Australasian Society for Emergency Medicine (ASEM) starts, helps, supports, defends, unites, publishes, advises, and generally does good things as a professional organisation for emergency medicine professionals.
The first of ASEM’s successes was starting the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM). And it provided a vehicle for the Emergency Life support course to get started. ASEM has helped research in emergency medicine by providing prizes for research based presentations at scientific meetings. It helps members with $200 off the cost of the annual Spring Seminar on Emergency Medicine and supports the conference long term.
During the long running dispute over contracts in Queensland, ASEM helped defend the conditions of emergency doctors.
There is a great and dispersed specialist and non-specialist workforce in emergency medicine and ASEM works to unite this workforce. ASEM began and remains open to all emergency doctors and now offers membership to students, Nurses and institutions. ASEM is part owner of the scientific journal; Emergency Medicine Australasia, and publishes a directory of Australasian Emergency Departments as well as a regular newsletter. Organisations can contact ASEM for a trusted source of advice on matters related to emergency medicine.
By joining ASEM, you are part of all this good work and you are helping it to continue.
