Emergency Medicine Perspectives of Students – Africa

EM perspectives of students - africa

Dear EM family,

The International Emergency Medicine Education Project (iem-student.org) has completed three years. As you may know, the iEM Education project aims to promote Emergency Medicine and provides copyright-free resources to students and educators around the world. Now we have reached more than 200 countries. We would like to thank again our contributors. Without them, such a project would not be possible. This experience has shown us once again how passionate our international EM community is to help and teach each other.

In May 2021, we started the fourth year of this journey. To celebrate, we are pleased to announce live activity series, Emergency Medicine Perspectives of Students Around the World. Our guests for the first session are Adebisi Adeyeye from Nigeria, Jonathan Kajjimu from Uganda, and Mohamed Hussein from Egypt, who are Student Council Leaders of the African Federation for Emergency Medicine

Together, we can understand the experiences and needs of medical students from different backgrounds and discuss potential solutions.

Here are the video and audio records of this session.
