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.

Last week’s review lecture on pulmonary conditions is now posted here: 2015 Pulmonology Review.

While the In-Service Exam isn’t until February 25, we thought we would start to put together some in-house resources to help folks get ready. Keep checking for updates and check-out the In-Service Review Resources tab under Residents for a complete list as well.
