Overview:

This conference is designed for early career physicians and fellows who are interested in building a career that encompasses both emergency medicine and global health.  It is also appropriate for later career providers who are interested in incorporating global health work for the first time.  The day-and-a-half agenda is designed to provide participants with both the knowledge and skills to successfully navigate both domestic issues such as funding and negotiating a job, as well as international issues such as building partnerships and using ultrasound in resource-limited settings.  Participants will also have ample time to meet and get to know others working in similar settings, opening up the possibilities for mutual learning and collaborations.

For the first time this year we will also be offering two different free, optional pre-course workshops with limited seating for those who want one-on-one time to review their specific projects and experiences with an expert in the field.  One is for participants who are interested in medical education and another is for those with interests in disaster preparedness in low-resource settings.

UCSF is the country’s only World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Emergency and Trauma Care, so participants will have the unique opportunity to learn about WHO programs and products, as well as the ground-breaking work in emergency care development being done at our institution.
