EM Global

EM Global is building emergency medicine capacity in areas where needed most. Our registered not-for-profit is a collaboration between Canadian, American and Tanzanian physicians dedicated to establishing the discipline of emergency medicine in Tanzania. We run short courses that are hands-on and skills-based to help providers of emergency care in Tanzania build upon their skills. We also sponsor local Tanzanian physicians to obtain their residency in emergency medicine.
From 2018-2021, we sponsored Dr. Emmanuel Kisanga to obtain an emergency medicine residency. In the entire country of Tanzania, a country of 59 million people, there were only 40 physicians who had residency training in emergency medicine. That's only 40 doctors for a country twice the population of Canada.
When you invest in supporting a local doctor to obtain this training, you are investing in the mind, heart, and hands of someone who will make a huge impact and treat thousands of patients in their career.
To build up emergency care where it is needed most, we need local champions who become the leaders of EM development where they live.
We are so proud of Emmanuel, who is now practicing at KCMC in Northern Tanzania. He is making a difference!
We are now sponsoring Ms. Angela Mbise. Angella is the second recipient of the Dr. Barbara Tatham Emergency Medicine Scholarship. EM Global previously sponsored Angella to complete her grade 12 diploma in Ontario, Canada. Now, she returns to East Africa to start her medical studies.
We at EM Global will be cheering her on in every way and ask you to join us in supporting her.
