2019 marks the return of the Annual Tidewater EMS Education Expo, which will be composed of 7 Tracks covering ALS, BLS, Nurse/Medic and Hot Topics which includes the following topics: Current Trends, Communications, Critical Care, Educator, Medical, Operations, Special Considerations and Trauma. The Expo is scheduled for May 2, 3, 4 and 5, 2019.

The Tidewater EMS Education Expo is one of the state's premier educational opportunities for EMS providers and Nurses to obtain continuing education credits and to network with peers. Each year, more than 150 registrants choose from 7 different tracks over the 4-day event.
National and local educators participate to make this event one of the top pre-hospital educational opportunities in the state.


Any person with an interest in participating as an Instructor is encouraged to submit “session” proposals for presentation during the 2019 TEMS EMS Education Expo. Sessions generally run 1 hour. Pre-convention (Thursday & Friday) sessions vary in length from 1.5 hours up to 8 hours to allow for Auxiliary course offerings (i.e. ACLS, AMLS). To be considered for the Tidewater EMS Education Expo, please submit a proposal no later than March 1, 2019. We encourage you to submit more than one topic, since speakers are usually asked to present a minimum of two or three lectures, and include a brief (no more than 150 words) description for each lecture that could be used in a conference brochure. You will be contacted to let you know whether or not your topics meet our needs.


Call for Presentations Information and General Instructions.

  • Complete the initial Instructor information.
  • Complete the Presentation Details section. Only put one presentation per submission. If you are submitting multiple presentations, complete a new submission for each presentation and number each one in the title. You will need to complete the “Instructor” section with the sequential number of presentation you are submitting.

The program committee will notify applicants of accepted presentations no later than April 1, 2019. A copy of completed presentations must be submitted to the program committee by April 15, 2019.


You must submit a CV, resume, or statement of qualifications. If submitting a statement of qualifications, include any professional credentials or licenses held or any university degrees, and current job title. If you are qualified through experience not reflected in your current job title, a description of that qualification must be included.
