Connection Information

Connection information will be sent after you pre-register. You must pre-register to be eligible for CE credit.

Continuing Education

Participants who have pre-registered will be eligible for Continuing Education credit, contingent upon completion of the post-Conference survey/evaluation. To claim credit, log in with the account you used to pre-register, then visit the My CE Records page. From there, verify the lectures you attended, rate the speaker and topic for each, and use the green plus icon to add them to the final record. Once all sessions have been rated and added, you can generate a PDF transcript that can be submitted via your state's procedures for Continuing Education credit by endorsement. 

Continuing Education is only available to those that pre-registered. 

Additional Information 

Group registration options are not available for this event; each participant must have an NCEMSF personal website account and must complete the registration form. There is no limit to the number of attendees per institution. If you do not have a personal website account, you can create one now. If you do have an account, please log in.

The objectives for this event are:

  1. Review the approach to the most common pre-hospital medical emergencies with emphasis on recognition of abnormal vital signs, obtaining a focused history, and initial management.
  2. Discuss the initial evaluation and stabilization of trauma patients.
  3. Review the most commonly encountered pre-hospital traumatic injuries and their treatment.
  4. Facilitate a group discussion on the current challenges facing collegiate EMS agencies.

Annual Awards and Self-Evaluative Programs

As part of our virtual February event, we are maintaining the current schedule for annual awards and self-evaluative programs. Please submit all nomination letters and self-evaluative packets by Friday, February 12, 2021. Award and program recipients will be announced as part of the virtual event.

Future 2021 Events

We are hopeful that we will be able to schedule an in-person event later in 2021, pending the status of the virus and availability of the vaccine. We have developed a short survey to gauge interest in and assess the scheduling, administrative, and financial constraints that groups may face with attending an in-person Conference, likely after the conclusion of the spring semester. If a representative of your group has not yet completed the survey, please fill it out so we can make an informed decision regarding any potential in-person events this year.
