Conference - March 9-10, 2017 in San Francisco, CA: Building a Career in Global Health and Emergency Medicine

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. 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.

CME credit will be available to all participants.

Our amazing speakers will be coming from across the globe and will provide varied perspectives in the practice of emergency medicine and global health across several private and public institutions. They include:

Teri Reynolds, Lead Scientist for the WHO Emergency, Trauma and Acute Care programme
