Nearly 200 emergency physicians, residents, nurses, PA's and allied health professionals converged on Florida College of Emergency Physicians' (FCEP) Symposium By the Sea this year, a significant 50 percent increase from last year's number of attendees.

Symposium by the Sea 2013 was about "Back to the Basics." This year's symposium featured all the usual favorites like the Satellite Symposiums, the preconference workshops, and the breakout sessions – with sessions on ultrasound, EKGs, difficult airway, high risk in chest pain cases, and pediatric dyspnea, all held to promote lifelong learning and assessment. Beth Brunner, FCEP's Executive Director, said, "We are extremely excited with this year's Symposium By the Sea. It was a huge success, and we are very grateful for and proud of our strong community of emergency care providers."

In speaking to this year's attendees, many raved about the great networking opportunities. Whether it was meeting the new EMRAF leadership and watching residents in the second annual SIMWars, or meeting medical students at the wine, beer and cheese reception, or meeting future employers at the annual EMRAF job fair, or even just relaxing on Clearwater's white sandy beaches, host to the Past-President’s annual volleyball tournament, people valued people.

Special to this year's SBS was the induction of FCEP's: New President, Michael Lozano, Jr., MD, FACEP; President Elect, Ashley Booth Norse, MD, FACEP; Vice President, Steven Kailes, MD, FACEP; and Secretary/Treasurer, Jay Falk, MD, FACEP. Also in attendance was Immediate Past President, Kelly Gray-Eurom, MD, MMM, FACEP.

Next year's Symposium By the Sea (Boca Raton Resort and Club, bocaresort.com: August 7–10) promises to continue FCEP's great tradition of providing world-class educational opportunities for its members who demand cutting-edge information regarding their ever-changing practice environment.

Patients can pay a high price for emergency room convenience
NPR
Medical entrepreneurs are remaking the emergency room experience. They're pulling the emergency room out of the hospital and planting it in the strip mall. It's called a "free-standing emergency room," and some 400 of them have opened across the country in the past four years. The trend is hot around Houston, where there are already 41 free-standing emergency rooms and 10 more in the works.
