Emergency Medicine International

About Stanford Emergency Medicine International (SEMI)

Recognition of the vital role emergency medical services play in the health care of a country has prompted a burgeoning interest in International Emergency Medicine (EM).  Many developing nations struggle to provide emergency medical care to their citizens.  Adequate infrastructure is often lacking, and even in areas with significant financial and medical resources, emergency medical personal training is limited.  Furthermore, EM is often not recognized as a medical specialty overseas, making it unfeasible for interested care providers to obtain the skills required to deliver effective care. 

Stanford Emergency Medicine International was created with the goal of promoting the development of emergency medicine and emergency medical services worldwide. Projects are designed with long-term sustainability in mind.
