Creating a world where all people, in all countries,
have access to high quality emergency medical care.


The International Federation for Emergency Medicine (IFEM) leads the development of the highest quality of emergency medical care for all people.

Our mission is to advance the growth of high quality emergency medical care through education and standards, to lead the collaboration and networking necessary to establish universal equality in service and care, and to promote the creation and growth of the specialty of emergency medicine in every country.

As a federation of grassroots emergency medicine organisations from countries and regions  with mature and highly developed emergency care systems, and systems in various stages of development or just starting out, IFEM has unique insight and reach into health systems globally.

Our Members are experts in all facets of emergency care, delivered in all environments, to all ages and types of patients. We can rapidly harness expertise and draw global teams together to work on a project, or any emergency care challenge.

So, put the dates in your calendars, prepare your abstracts, update your profile photo and – maybe, hopefully – dust off your passports.
