20 in 6 Resident Lecture Competition

The EMRA 20 in 6 Resident Lecture Competition occurs at ACEP’s Scientific Assembly every year and is hosted by residents, for residents. We seek out the best resident speakers in the country and each year, they compete for the title “Best Resident Lecturer.” Residents are given up to six minutes and exactly 20 slides to lecture on any topic that is relevant to emergency medicine. It’s designed to be a fast-paced, intellectually-stimulating event in a fun, EMRA-style atmosphere.

Herd of Zebras! Case-Con at ACEP

We’ve all had the experience of seeing a notable patient case in the ED; whether it’s that diagnostic mystery that has puzzled you since your first EM medical school rotation, or that unusual presentation of what turned out to be a staple EM diagnosis that you saw as a resident last week. Seeing new things (or familiar things presenting in novel ways) is one of the rewarding aspects of practicing EM at any career stage.

Turn your interesting experience into a chance to present original research on a national stage!  Case Reports are among the most accessible forms of research, whether you’re a seasoned researcher or hoping for your first publication.

What is a Case Report?

Case reports are based upon an interesting patient encounter.  They are brief descriptions of uncommonly documented disease processes, rarely reported presentations (or treatments) of known diseases, or previously unreported complications of established treatments.

For examples, check out the Case Report section of the Annals of Emergency Medicine site, or browse winning cases from past CaseCon events via links below!  If you are not sure whether your case qualifies as interesting, feel free to email the CaseCon team.

How do I submit a case to CaseCon?

The first step is to submit a page-long abstract of your Case Report.  The deadline is July 30, 2021.  Click on the submission link for specifications.

CaseCon (Medical Student and Resident portions) will take place Monday, 10/25/2021 virtually.


EMRA’s MedWAR (Medical Wilderness Adventure Race) combines wilderness medicine with adventure racing to create a unique event designed to teach and test wilderness survival and medical skills.  This event provides residents and medical students an opportunity for hands-on wilderness medicine experience. The best way to learn wilderness medicine is to get outside and practice. Participants are challenged to use their broad knowledge of wilderness medicine to handle a series of potential medical emergencies. Do you have what it takes to compete?
