Greetings now from Singapore (well a week late). This has been one of the highlights of the trip. By taking part in the Society for Emergency Medicine in Singapore (SEMS) Annual Scientific Meeting, I met many physicians from around South East Asia and beyond. By listening and speaking to such a diverse crowd at varying stages in the practice of Emergency Medicine, I have been able to gain a better appreciation of Emergency Medicine in general. The conference was a well organized, high quality conference which I came away with some educational pearls. In addition, taking part in the post-conference Winfocus sessions afterwards afforded me the opportunity to interact with other ultrasonography keeners. Great forum to exchange ideas and approaches to ultrasonography. The Korean dinner was real yummy too!

The conference and Winfocus course both took place in the beautiful surroundings of Khoo Teck Puat Hospital in Singapore. This is a new a great new facility with it's own lake for peaceful walks and tranquility steps away from the emergency department. Yes, that really is the waiting board -- 311 visits at 18:00 starting from 24:00 and only a 72 minute wait! Wow!
