The American College of Emergency Physicians has planned the usual comprehensive educational experience for the Scientific Assembly this Oct. 26-29, but in a virtual mode that promises to be just like being there.
Courses will be on-demand, live and prerecorded, with all the typical social events, including some new ones, like Guac with a Doc Happy Hour and S'mores & Storytelling.
