EMCEF – Emergency Medicine Continuing Education Forum

The EMCEF meetings have been running since 2010, and have gained momentum as an opportunity for high quality CPD provided by not only local consultants and trainees, but international speakers of world renown.

From a relatively small beginning, the days regularly attract >100 delegates from all over the UK and are highly recommended for their engaging and entertaining speakers and broad content.

Twice a year – spring and autumn
