Dr. Philip Ireland is a Liberian physician who practices in the emergency department of JFK hospital in Liberia. He was the preceptor for students and residents from Yale rotating to JFK Emergency until the outbreak of Ebola.
He both cared for Ebola patients as well as contracted the illness himself while providing that service. He was the only physician from his group to survive the illness. Dr Ireland was profiled in TIME magazine as one of the Ebola Fighters.
We have Phil here for a few weeks doing some training with our department as part of an EM teaching immersion program. He will be sharing an inspiring story with us this week at conference about front-line emergency care in the heart of the Ebola crisis.
He details both the overall crisis as well as his personal journey to the edge of death and back after contracting Ebola. I had the privilege of hearing him present a version of this story to the medical school and he does so with feeling, humor and humility. It’s a talk you WON’T want to miss.

Articles will be posted on YaleEM soon to help guide the discussion with an eye towards the spectrum of management styles based on available resources, special considerations for pediatric patients, and what some of the guidelines say from key agencies.
Like in October, this will be a multidisciplinary event, and we are very excited to welcome faculty discussants from Pediatric Surgery and General Surgery, as Drs. Doruk Ozgediz (Yale) and Arlene Muzira (Makerere University, Uganda) will be joining us.
As important, this is a venue for all of us to become familiar with our colleagues in other departments doing global health work here at Yale. It’s open to faculty, residents and students from the whole university—particularly those on the health sciences campus. It is open and you should feel free to all you think might want to attend. EM residents please check your email for a link to RSVP so that we can have enough food. All others please, leave a comment here or hit us up on twitter @yaleem2, and we will get you a spot at the table.

Emergency Medicine Lectures will take place at Yale on Wednesday, October 14th in Harkness Auditorium beginning at 9:00am. Breakfast will be served.

Emergency Care is not just delivered within the four-walls of an emergency department. Similarly, the research interests of our faculty and residents extend beyond the traditional EM research agenda. More than this, Yale’s faculty are helping to redefine what is research in Emergency Medicine, International Emergency Medicine, Informatics, and Social Determinants of Health. Over the last few months, the most recent publications out of our department really highlight the depth and breadth of intellectual inquiry here.

Congratulations to:
