The Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration in Emergency Medicine (TAAAC-EM) is an internationally recognized leader in postgraduate medical education. Since the initiation of the program ten years ago, 43 emergency medicine physicians (and counting) have completed postgraduate training and are establishing emergency departments across the country.  

Our collaboration involves not only curriculum delivery but also curriculum development, building resource-appropriate exam procedures and bringing together similarly-minded physicians from across east Africa in a series of leadership conferences. We have three annual one month teaching visits by U of T emergency medicine staff and residents, from both the Department of Medicine and the Department of Family and Community Medicine. We also organize a visiting fellowship program hosted at U of T for Ethiopian staff.  

Our program is at the cusp of a transition, an exciting time in which Ethiopian emergency medicine staff are now taking on most of the postgraduate training of their residents. Our partnership is moving into a new phase with increased focus on specialty training in point of care ultrasound, simulation and continuing professional development for new staff. We are seeking highly motivated individuals who are interested in taking on leadership positions within TAAAC-EM as Curriculum LeadContinuing Professional Development Lead,Simulation Lead and Research Liaison (position descriptions here).
