A future challenge for international EM development is expanding the specialty to Africa, where it is non-existent. Another goal for international EM development is to assist in the peace process in the Middle East. There is increasing need for good EM development throughout the world. Development of international EM has been rapid, with most of the spread of development occurring in the last 10 years. There is great opportunity and reward for students, residents, and EM physicians to further promote and develop EM internationally.
