IEMH physicians are trained in Emergency Medicine, a specialty that has existed for more than 25 years in the United States but is relatively new in many other parts of the world. Our specialty encompasses virtually every aspect of disease and injury, making emergency doctors uniquely qualified to be on the front lines of public health efforts. We treat infections, ease breathing, restore heartbeats and perform a wide range of other emergency procedures. We are trained to set priorities, solve problems, and build decisive and cohesive teams.

At the IEMH, emergency physicians are combining their experience in delivering hands-on, top-quality emergency care with a deep commitment to promoting the health of all people in all nations, giving special focus to regions in distress.
