The ASER 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting and Postgraduate Course

September 6 - 9, 2017
The Hilton Toronto
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Emergency Radiology is a growing subspecialty and has become a popular topic for continuing medical education courses over the last several years. The Society’s goal is to maintain the annual ASER meeting as the premier CME course in Emergency Radiology. Attendee feedback from the ASER 2016 meeting in San Francisco, California was extremely positive. This year’s meeting in Toronto, Canada will build on the successes of this year, and further expand the program’s offerings.
