Our Fellows and trainees have been assisting in the development of emergency medicine overseas for decades. We established the IEM-Network in 2004 to support our Fellows, trainees and anyone else interested in the development of international emergency medicine. The IEM-Network connects its members, keeps them up-to-date with events and job opportunities, and provides relevant resources and information.

The IEM-Network Goals

The IEM-Network aims to:

  • Provide international emergency medicine news and information
  • Aid with networking to support the development of international emergency medicine projects
  • Develop links with emergency medicine providers globally, especially in developing countries
  • Cultivate international emergency medicine opportunities.

IEM-Network members are currently undertaking development work in various countries, including:
