International Emergency Medicine

The International Emergency Medicine Program at BIDMC strives to promote the growth of academic programs and clinical excellence in Emergency Medicine worldwide. Its other goals are to foster international collaboration and to provide assistance to members of the international community to develop Emergency Medicine within the context of the healthcare needs of their own countries. Current active projects involve Emergency Medicine systems in Russia, Europe, Central and South America, as well as CME programs in Italy. The International Emergency Medicine program has also recently received grant funding from the United Nations to promote Emergency Medicine worldwide.
