Greetings and Welcome To All

 

 

It is my very great pleasure to welcome you all to the American College of Emergency Physicians' International Section Discussion Forum.  We have been hard at work trying to make this a great place for physicians interested in the international forum to come, ask questions, trade stories, learn, teach and explore the opportunities that our amazing field has to offer on the broader stage.

My name Is Kerry Forrestal.  I am an Emergency Medicine physician on Maryland's beautiful Eastern Shore.  I have been to Haiti several times and China along with ACEP/People to People program which I can highly recommend.  I hope to explore more opportunities internationally with all of you.

Welcome and please help to make this a robust and vibrant forum.  Invite fellow ER docs to come and share their experiences and opportunities. 

Most importantly POST!



All the best!

Kerry

Thank you Kerry for all your work getting these forums started.


I wanted to also post an introduction.


My name is Alison, I am an emergency physician graduate of the UMass Medical Center residency program, with a fellowship in disaster medicine and emergency preparedness. I recently moved on from a staff position at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, back to New England while I am finishing a Master's in Public Health degree. I'm currently looking for a full-time job to start after the degree program finishes.


In my 'spare time' I work as executive director of the Uganda Village Project, a nonprofit I helped to found about 10 years ago. Uganda Village Project was my original inspiration for getting involved in global health. We serve rural communities in eastern Uganda (focus is in the Iganga District). My interests include global public health and humanitarian relief, resident education, and global health ethics. I am also currently serving as the chair of the Communications Committee of the ACEP International Section.


I welcome any and all inquiries or discussion about global health, volunteer ethics, small nonprofit startups/philanthropy, and public health/medical  work in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly Uganda.

Hello all:

 

Having this forum is a marvelous idea, especially for those of us who seem to be somewhere else in the world during ACEP meetings.

 

Currently, I am posting from far above the Arctic Circle where I will be working until the latter part of October. Yes, it is cold!

 

I am aware that many members of this section have lots of responsibililties. What I would like to suggest is that, as we work around the world, we offer to help our colleagues design studies and then help polish them in English to get them published. I've done this in Argentina, South Sudan, Mexico, and rural Ghana. Not as exciting or dramatic as doing a resuscitation, but it probably has a more lasting effect on the individuals involved and our specialty than most of the other things we do.

 

I'd certainly like to hear what other members think about this.

 

Best wishes, to all, Ken Iserson, MD, MBA, FACEP, FAAEM, FIFEM

Hi all!

My name is Michele Alzetta, and I'm the chief of the emergency medical services in Venice (Venezia, Italy) - historical town and lagoon. I lived in Cape Town for nine years as a child, but all my university training has been in Italy. I've had some experience in international cooperation projects: two years in Paraguay, some experience in refugee camps in Albania during Kosovo war.

Hope this forum will be a good way of exchanging ideas! Thanks to the forum masters, I know that setting up such a thing is not easy.

Hi I am Tamara Augustine. A recent grad hoping to match into EM this coming year. I am from the beautiful Caribbean island of Dominica and would love to one day introduce EM as a specialty there. I love to travel and so far Ive been to over 20 countries. I hope to combine my love for people and travel with my love for EM by getting involved in IEM.

 

Thank you for setting up this forum! I look forward to an opportunity to grow as I learn from the experts

Hi,

My name is Courtney Clamp, currently an EM resident at UC Davis Medical Center and also the EMRA International Committee Chair.  I am excited to see this section forum as it will be a great resource for EM residents who are looking for international opportunities.  We are currently working on updating our own website so as to better facilitate information for residents interested in International Emergency Medicine.  I hope to have our committee contributing to the Observership and Rotation Opportunities database as well, but I realize that it may take some time!

 

I have been struggling with the best venue to post information so that interested parties may read it.  Most recently, I added IEM updates to EMRA's blog located here http://www.empostcall.com, but I don't think there is a large following yet.  If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to collaborate!

 

Thanks,

Courtney

Hello all,

My name is Mike Dorrity and I'm an Emergency Physician practicing in Charleston, SC, after completeing an EM Residency at Michigan State University in Lansing in 2010.  I've been on several international trips, most recently to North Africa in 2011 and will be in China in October.  I've been to China once before but didn't have much contact with EM, so I'm interested in anyone who can enlighten me on the state of EM practice and training in China, particularly southeastern areas, where I'm headed.

Thanks,

Mike

Hello

     My name is Jessica Best I am a first year EM resident at University Medical Center Brackenridge. I have strong interests in Global Health and Education. I am currently the Vice-Chair of the Education Committee for EMRA and the International Region Representative. I have 1 month in both my second and third year to do an elective. I was hoping to spend this time working abroad. One would think with an open opportunity to do rotations you would have an easy time finding opportunities. But I am actually having some difficulty. Whether it be because some private institutions charge alot to travel with them, or because much of what I am finding is outdated. I have now started to reach out to International Fellowship Program Directors for advice. I am also looking to use this forum to look for suggestions and advice. As a new residency class we are looking to pave the way with great international electives where we can gain the most from a global health experience. Thank you for any help you can provide me!
