Celebrating ten years of Emergency Medicine research

On Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd of November 2018, we are inviting you to EMERGE10: Powered by Curiosity, a celebratory conference marking EMERGE’s 10th Anniversary!

The themes of the conference are Innovation, Education, Pre-Hospital Care and Global Health. We will be focusing on the latest research in emergency medicine and the advancement made in the last decade.

Evening Ceilidh

It’s not all serious and we think 10 years is worth celebrating so we would love you to join us for a ceilidh in the evening. This is organised in partnership with Medic One.

Because of the location, there are no parking facilities, though there is plenty of space for guests to be dropped off and picked up. There is a large NCP car park about ten minutes away on Castle Terrace and there is some street parking around the Grassmarket area at the foot of the hill.
