Overview:

In this episode we talk about the rapidly growing field of international emergency medicine, and how you can get involved in this movement. Dr. Kate Douglass, a fellowship director of international emergency medicine at George Washington University, and Dr. Steve Andescavage, an ER physician from Lincoln City, Oregon, help to define this field of medicine, and share some of their own experiences they have had abroad.
