About Us


Strategic Solutions to Drive Your Business Forward

The Associates In Emergency Medical Education, Inc., more affectionately known by our trademarked name of “AIEME”, was founded in January of 1995.

We began with 1,200 participants our first year, and have been privileged to serve over 5,000 members of our medical community annually in the last decade. Participants include physicians, nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists and other medically related professionals.

Our goal has always been to provide courses that are practical as well as enjoyable – not just academic hoops required for maintaining licensure. We put a high emphasis on utilizing participant feedback in the planning and development of the original and innovative courses for which we have become known. Focusing on “internalization, not memorization” has become a trademarked philosophy for AIEME and one that has been proven to increase the level of care being afforded to the patients .
