Dear Colleagues,

We are thrilled to invite you to 16th Turkish Congress on Emergency Medicine with International Participation (TATKON 2020). We aim to bring together the most traditional and deep-rooted congress of our country, TATKON, and emergency medicine specialists and assistants under a single roof. Proving itself every year by the scientific value it brings to its congresses, Emergency Medicine Association of Turkey (TATD) is changing the direction of congresses and bringing together mentor names in their field on an online platform this year.

Emergency Medicine has been accepted as a specialty major in our country for more than 25 years. Every year, more emergency medicine specialists take place in the health system than in the previous year. Our growing community is the source of motivation for congresses held with the aim of bettering itself each year by Emergency Medicine Association of Turkey. From the beginning of this process to this day, Emergency Medicine Association of Turkey has been the biggest supporter of health care workers and emergency medical professionals and continues to do so. The publications of our association and its scientific and educational activities, which are organized to support continuous medical education, have always been a source of reference for institutions and organizations providing emergency medicine education for emergency medicine specialists, physicians and specialty students in medicine.

The world is changing!... Education is changing!... Congresses are changing!... Under the influence of COVID-19 pandemic; we share the most up-to-date information within the framework of the congress with the contribution of international speakers. We have determined the motto of our congress as "Changing World" in the light of many up-to-date information, both pre-graduate and medical specialty education. Under this theme, we wanted to prepare a congress program that would encompass everyone and mirror our current situation during the COVID-19 pandemic days.

Will there be any innovations in our congress that will be held as TATKONLINE this year? Of course. As TATD, we will continue to present many firsts and innovations to you. With TATKON 2020, we will find solutions by focusing on the problems of emergency services in our country while discussing national health problems with the philosophy of society oriented medicine.

Your participation and support will be the strength of the Emergency Medicine expertise.
Sincerely Yours,

Prof. Dr. Süleyman Türedi
President of
Emergency Medicine Association of Turkey
