The EMS State of the Sciences Conference (dubbed by some media as "A Gathering of Eagles") has become one of the most important EMS conferences worldwide.
The U.S. Metropolitan Municipalities EMS Medical Directors Consortium (The “Eagles” Coalition) is comprised of most of the jurisdictional EMS Medical Directors for the nation's 20 - 25 largest cities 9-1-1 systems as well as the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service. In essence, this small cadre of leading emergency specialists not only oversee the medical aspects of day-to-day 9-1-1 calls and early resuscitative care in the nations most populous cities, but most of them are also responsible for much of the medical aspects of homeland security in these high-risk venues in which nearly 50 million Americans dwell and make their livelihood.
The purpose of this conference is to provide participants with the most cutting edge information on EMS research, management issues, lessons learned and newly-proposed advanced patient care techniques. This perennially-popular national EMS conference is designed primarily for prehospital emergency care providers including: physicians, paramedics, EMT's, first responders, EMS system directors, fire chiefs, medical directors and educators, emergency nurses and researchers interested in EMS, trauma & resuscitation innovations as well as related State-of-the-Art investigations & prehospital care delivery techniques across the United States.
