Havana, Cuba – yes we can!

DevelopingEM is a community aimed at promoting emergency medicine and critical care development world wide.

We function solely through the support of our multinational faculty and delegate group.

Word of mouth remains the most powerful tool we have for promoting our aims and objectives and you, our supporters, can help us spread the DevelopingEM concept.

Havana 2015 will be another amazing experience and the more delegates we have the more we can do as an organization to assist our Caribbean colleagues.

So tell your friends and workmates about DevelopingEM and help us make 2015 our best effort ever.
