EMRA Spotlight, International Committee

Meet Colleen Laurence, MD, MPH

We're pleased to introduce Colleen Laurence, MD, MPH, chair of the EMRA International Committee, 2020-2021.

Colleen Laurence, MD, MPHProgram: University of Cincinnati College of Medicine

Your goal as an EMRA leader: I want to help student and resident members of EMRA expand their understanding of global emergency medicine as a discipline and as a career using journal discussions, faculty lectures, panels, and interviews with EM providers who train and practice in low resource settings. As always, we also hope to facilitate connection to global emergency medicine opportunities and mentorship between students, residents, and faculty.

Favorite life hack for night shifts: Bring a giant bag of Sour Patch Kids to share, slow down, get to know everyone.
