Life-threatening illness. Language barriers. A shortage of doctors–or no doctors nearby.

What do all these phrases have in common? They describe the chain of survival in many lower-resource settings. In Mexico, Latin America, and other regions, there’s a critical need for the skills, knowledge, and abilities of qualified medical professionals.

You’re invited to join us at the 2nd Pan-American Forum of Emergency Care and Global Health–together, we’ll look to address this critical need. We hope to empower professionals in emergency medicine, obstetrics, pediatrics, hospitals, and neonatal pediatrics as they bring critical-time interventions to these needy areas. Please reserve the dates!


  • Create medical training programs in lower-resource settings
  • Utilize telementoring, mHealth, & other technologies to form new implementation systems
  • Review pilots for ECHO’s telementoring programs
  • Provide Continuing Medical Education to professionals (CME Credit Available)
  • Positively affect the chain of survival through the skills of emergency care professionals

A Message from our Sponsor, PACEMD

Here at PACEMD, we’ve made it our mission to improve medical care in Mexico and Latin America. Our program, thanks to our 150 dynamic instructors, has trained over 41,000 health care providers in the region. We are a Latin American Regional Reference Center for ALSO Emergency Obstetrics as well as the Emergency Nurses Association’s Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC).

We were proud to host 648 participants in our inaugural forum, and we’re excited for another great conference. Paired with professionals from around the world, our forum focus groups seek to develop mentorship relationships with physicians in local communities, form partnerships with clinical leaders in Latin America, and establish in-residency programs within Mexico.

The foundation of PACEMD’s programs has been immersion training in MedSpanish. This program intersects emergency medicine with global health by providing a unique blend of practical experience in the field as well as Spanish language instruction for medical professionals. Because our MedSpanish students are not only learning Spanish but also working directly within the medical arena, the program intersects emergency medicine with global health.

Our goals

  • Implement infrastructure development programs through community-based training in Latin America
  • Develop and monitor training systems in emergency care
  • Leverage care in Latin America
  • Establish an Advance Competency Certificate in Emergency Care and Global Health
  • Partner with SpanishPod101 to create an online “follow me” program for MedSpanish students

We’re excited to have you join us at the 2019 Pan-American Forum of Emergency Care and Global Health!
