International Ambassador Map

This map is a basic representation of the development of Emergency Medicine globally. Emergency medicine exists in different levels of development in different countries. In many countries, emergency medicine does not exist or is just starting to develop, with only one or a few emergency medicine training programs. Data for the map below was obtained through the yearly country reports completed by the ACEP International Ambassadors, who are ACEP members representing ACEP and promoting the growth of emergency medicine in countries around the world.

This information is to the best of our knowledge and our abilities based on our Ambassador country reports. If you feel there is an error or inaccuracy, please submit a correction.
