Complete Story



Government Services Symposium 2024

This year's Government Services Symposium will be held from April 3-5, 2024 in sunny San Diego, CA. DHA transitions, Ukraine's crisis, Great Power completion, the future of the EM workforce... We live in busy times and the time has never been better for the Government EM community to come together! 

This year GSACEP is teaming up with the Joint Services Symposium in EM (JSSEM) to make this the biggest, best and more fun conference yet! Below you will find information about how you can contribute and submission links for speakers, proposed courses, the new speaker forum and research. Hope to see you there!

Course Proposal and Speaker Submission

Last year was the best GSS to date, due in large part to the great talks! Help us do it again. Talks on any topic pertinent to GSACEP members will be considered. Topics that differ from traditional core medical topics are particularly desired. We are also looking for a few good team topics, debates or short panel discussions! Send them all!

We are looking for most speakers to present at GSS in-person, but submissions for virtual presentations will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you are deployed, please do not let location hold you back from submitting- we may be able to work with your situation.
Submissions due by Friday, December 8th, 2023, 2300 EST
