Join the ACEP Delegation to Morocco

Connect with emergency physicians and other health care specialists in Morocco on the ACEP delegation. Led by Vidor E. Friedman, MD, FACEP, immediate past president of ACEP, the program will give you a unique opportunity to learn about the way that healthcare and emergency care and response are practiced in this developing country in north Africa.

The Kingdom of Morocco, led by King Mohammad VI, is committed to building a strong healthcare infrastructure, both public and private. Since 2015, Morocco has been in the process of building over 30 hospitals, including five University hospitals. This delegation will have the opportunity to learn how this advancement will transform the challenges faced today by Morocco’s growing healthcare system.
