“to promote at an international level interchange, understanding and cooperation among physicians practicing emergency medicine”

Welcome to the International Federation for Emergency Medicine

A message from the President

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the IFEM website. Since this Federation of national EM organisations was established, it has grown enormously to become a strong and vibrant organisation that is truly global in outlook.   In spite of this rapid growth, IFEM remains committed to spreading the message of Emergency Medicine internationally and I urge all national Emergency Medicine organisations to join the Federation to ensure that all corners of the world are represented.     As the Charter talks about every citizen’s right to receive emergency care by trained emergency physicians, one of the most important functions of this organization is to help other countries develop emergency medical care, systems, and training programmes. The only way this can be achieved is by us working together and helping those who need it.

With warm wishes to all those who participate in providing emergency care.
