2018 Plenary Sessions: Precision Medicine in Neuromuscular and Musculoskeletal Medicine.

The 2018 plenary speakers have been chosen to share their expertise as it relates to the theme: Precision Medicine in Neuromuscular and Musculoskeletal Medicine. According to Eric J. Sorenson, MD, AANEM President, these individuals are “worldwide leaders in the development of novel therapeutics and will explain how to translate this into clinical practice.” Electrodiagnostic testing and its impact on achieving proper diagnoses will also be discussed and ethical questions (e.g. how to pay for medications and how to support patients) will be addressed related to the rehabilitative challenges of progressive and fatal diseases as they transition to chronic conditions.

Your registration gives you access to a wide variety of educational sessions related to neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, and electrodiagnostic medicine. We have a diverse group of meeting attendees each year whose learning needs are different. To cover the spectrum, we have sessions on the basics for those in the early stages of their career (or those who just need
a refresher!) as well as advanced sessions for seasoned professionals. There is something for everyone! Each attendee can tailor their learning by choosing the offerings most applicable to their practice. Most sessions offer CME and CEUs.

NOTE: The following sessions have limited seating and require advance registration: Challenging Cases Roundtable and Bedside Evidence Based Medicine. If you wish to attend either session (or both), be sure to include them when you complete your registration. Industry Forums also have limited seating; however, no advance registration is required. If interested in attending an industry forum, arrive early to secure a spot!


Enhance your learning experience by adding workshops to your registration. To customize your meeting experience, you may choose to add workshops to your registration. Workshops are designed for hands-on learning in small groups and are led by experts in the field. Workshops typically feature a specific subject with participants gathered around while the expert teaches a technique or concept. Almost all of our workshops offer CME and some offer CEUs.

To help keep general registration costs lower, workshops are not included with the general registration fee. Check out the great lineup of available workshops and review the insert for pricing information.

NOTE: Workshops are held throughout the day on Wednesday and Saturday. They have limited seating and require advance registration. All workshops are open to physicians. Technologists may attend workshops where CEUs are being offered.

Social Events

Social events are included with your AANEM Annual Meeting registration. All registered attendees are invited to attend the meeting’s social events which include speed networking, the President’s Reception, exhibit hall, abstract poster presentations, Abstract Award Winners’ Reception, and EMG Tonight.
