I was wondering if any individuals in this group are involved in teaching critical care overseas, eg. by teaching FCCS courses, ultrasound, or in any structured / longitudinal programs. Would love to get in touch and hear about opportunities to get involved.

Thank you everyone for responding.
i unfortunately won't be able to attend the 2/8 Global Outreach KEG call, since I will be in Nicaragua with a team providing medical care for victims of human trafficking, in partnership with a local organization. I've been serving there and in Honduras with the same ministry for many years, but this year I finally had the time to teach and work overseas in my actual field of critical care (teaching at a university hospital in Mongolia, and working for a month at a mission hospital in rural Kenya). I would love to learn from those of you who have been doing longitudinal work in critical care overseas.
Dr. Siddiqui, if you have any contacts how to get involved with teaching FCCS courses overseas, I would love to get connected. When I was working in Kenya, I thought the FCCS course would be extremely useful for the medical and clinical officers, interns, and nurses there. Having that training would make a real difference in patient care, I believe. Cost will be an issue with FCCS.
Dr. Crawford, I'd love to learn more about what you've been doing in East Africa and the EECC network. I think I attended a talk you gave to this group a while back.
I recently spoke with Dr. Burton Lee at the NIH (he's the Head of Medical Education and Global Critical Care). He's part of the Global Critical Care Collaborative working in Kenya; I believe 7 academic US institutions (or healthcare professionals from these institutions) are part of that.
My personal email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, if anyone wants to connect individually.
I would love to know about the course you have developed for Rwanda. Perhaps you can elaborate during the next on line meeting or share some details here if possible. My personal email is email@example.com
It is still in process but what we have developed thus far can be found here: https://www.stanesglobal.com/ Those interested in becoming contributors are welcome!
I am involved in teaching FCCS overseas in East Africa , also Tajikistan as well. A course also planned for Pakistan. I am so glad to have connected with you and hear about from others. I cannot make it to SCCM this year, however hope to stay connected with all online.
