Emergency Medicine In The Tropics:
1st- 11th May 2017
Join us for EMIT2 , an incredible opportunity for EM and other acute-care trainees from overseas to learn from local and international faculty in a busy tropical emergency department in Kigali, Rwanda.
This packed two-week pre-conference course covers a diversity of topics relevant to anyone interested in global health and developing emergency care in resource-constrained settings. Sessions incorporate a heavy focus on clinical exposure with lectures and workshops focused on trauma, critical care, paediatrics, disaster response, and lots of ultrasound.
The course is based in the very busy Emergency Department at CHUK, Rwanda’s tertiary referral hospital.
EMIT2 includes a visit to a district hospital ED, attendance at the 2nd Rwanda Emergency Care Association conference on 12 May, plus time to explore the beautiful Land of 1000 Hills (and perhaps even see gorillas)!
EMIT for Emergency and Critical Care Nurses
This year EMIT is also running a parallel track for emergency and critical care nurses. Nurses and doctors will attend lectures together, but nurses will have their own clinical sessions with experienced emergency and critical care nurses working in Rwanda (in both adult and paediatric care). Please see attached information sheet for more details, or email [email protected]
