Welcome from GEMS LP!

Hello and welcome to the first blog post from ACEP’s International Section’s Global Emergency Medicine Student Leadership Program. We are thrilled to partner with iEM in the hosting of this blog, and we thank them for their collaboration and enthusiasm.

Global EM is a young, quickly growing field in the world of health care, but there remains much work to be done. The GEMS LP program was designed to involve students in this exciting and fulfilling specialty. The program itself falls under ACEP’s International Section in conjunction with the International Ambassador Program. All of these entities share a common goal: the advancement of the emergency medicine specialty worldwide.

Through this blog, we hope to educate, inspire, update, and collaborate on all things global EM.  Every couple of weeks, you can expect to read the ‘key points’  from our journal clubs. In each meeting, we review fundamental global health topics through a book chapter and a research paper, followed by a dynamic discussion with a diverse group ranging from medical students to attendings, working both in the US and abroad. Additionally, you can look forward to interviews with some of ACEP’s International Ambassador team members, interesting case discussions, GEMS LP project highlights and other fun commentaries from our mentees and team! 

We look forward to providing you relevant content that will encourage discussion, contemplation, and promotion of the field of global emergency medicine. Thank you for joining us on this new adventure!
