I'm a fourth-year medical student at the University of Michigan applying to Emergency Medicine.

Joey Ciano

My name is Joey Ciano, I am a born and raised New Yorker currently working and living in Queens, NY. I am finishing my first year of International Emergency Medicine Fellowship in the Northwell Health system. My main interest in International EM is promoting EM systems building. This focuses on promoting the development of the specialty of EM in countries that have not yet recognized EM as a field or are in the early stages of this process. My main interest is working on the post-graduate educational infrastructure. I have done EM educational work in Uganda and continue to work in West Bengal, India to help educate practitioners in EM to help specialty development. COVID-19 has changed the way we teach locally and internationally, so I thought this project would be a great opportunity to reach international students in EM during these challenging times.

  • Emergency Medicine education in medical schools is unexpectedly affected because of coronavirus pandemic. Face to face academic days were canceled, clinical shifts removed from the list. Developed countries and their universities applied or increased online teaching technologies and methods immediately to continue educational activities. However, countries with limited resources are still struggling to teach medical students. Although iEM had plans to create MOOCs for medical students under the guidance of new undergraduate curriculum recommendations of IFEM, the pandemic pulled this plan to earlier days than expected. It is still in the testing period, but iEM's free open online course platform for medical students will be with you soon. Stay tuned!
  • We have a new blog author. Leah Sarah Peer is a Canadian medical student from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She has a Bachelor’s of Science, with a Specialization Biology, and a Minor Human Rights.

ICEM2019

ICEM2019 was one of the very successful conferences of IFEM. Korean Emergency Medicine Society showed incredible organizational leadership and successfully organized such a big event for the world of emergency medicine.

Although there is a lot to talk about South Korean hospitality, foods and the Seoul city, we’d like to give some exciting numbers and highlights from the conference. There were 2725 attendees from 72 countries at the conference. 116 (4%) of the attendees were from middle and low-income countries. It is quite a high number if we compare to other ICEMs. Korean society did an outstanding job by offering discounted or free registration option for these countries. However, it is still 4%, and if we want to improve emergency medicine around the globe, we need to increase this number too. Australia was the country which had the highest attendees after South Korea, 173 and 1555, respectively. According to the conference scientific secretary, the longest registered attendee name was “Annuar Muhammad Zuljimal Bin Osman” from Malaysia. The first registrant was from USA, Eugene Kim. Highest group registration was Korean Fire Agency with 193 attendees. The youngest kid in the conference was 14 months old. Total scientific minutes were 12,030 in 29 topics. Siti Nasrina Yahaya presented 12 presentations at the conference, which is the highest number. Application of the conference downloaded 2,198 times. In 4 days, over 50 news released in media. There were 134 organizing committee members and 120 staff. The next conference ICEM2020 will be in Buenos Aires, Argentina (http://www.icem2020.net).

MOOC

One of the new project of the iEM is free massive open online course (MOOC) of Emergency Medicine for medical students who do not have structured Emergency Medicine training in their medical schools. The project aiming to create an adjustable course for different needs and various lengths. The content will be created under the guidance of the new IFEM undergraduate curriculum. 

The IFEM Core Curriculum and Education committee and IFEM Board gave us a green light to move forward to develop a MOOC and its certification process. 

IFEM Awards

The IFEM awards ceremony was held in the leadership dinner in Seoul during the ICEM2019. Melanie Stander, Vice-President of the IFEM and Prof. James Ducharme, President of the IFEM presented the awards right after the Gautam Bodiwala’s presentation regarding the history of IFEM awards. There are three awards of IFEM; Gautam Bodiwala Lifetime Achievement Award, IFEM Humanitarian Award, Order of IFEM Award. This year Gautam Bodiwala Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Prof. James Holliman. He is one of the significant figures of international emergency medicine who helped the development of emergency medicine in many countries. IFEM Humanitarian Award was given to the Korean Society of Emergency Medicine and Prof. Elisabeth M. Molyneux from Royal Collge of Emergency Medicine, UK. Order of IFEM Award entitles the recipients to use Fellow of the International Federation for Emergency Medicine (FIFEM). This year award was given to Prof. Lisa Moreno-Walton from American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM president-elect), Prof. Anthony Lawler and Assoc/Prof. Sally McCarthy from Australasian College of Emergency Medicine, Prof. Arif Alper Cevik from Emergency Medicine Association of Turkey, Dr. Clifford Mann from the Royal Collge of Emergency Medicine, UK, and Dr. Lau Fei Lung from Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine.

FIFEM Awardees – Lisa Moreno-Walton, Anthony Lawler, Sall McCarthy, Arif Alper Cevik, Lau Fei Lung, Taj Hassan (On behalf of Clifford Mann)

AlHanouv

KSA

I recently finished Emergency Medicine residency in KSA and continuing my training on Master of Healthcare Administration. From my little experience in working and studying Emergency Medicine, I have to admit that having such projects made things more easier and enjoyable. By using different ways of sharing knowledge, this has made a big difference in Physicians practices also in their confidence in being updated and discussing topics anywhere at anytime with everyone you can imagine. We can all benefit from each other by trying our best to find new ways in sharing/explaining knowledge in a more smoother way.
