Supporting EM in Vanuatu
Thanks to the generosity of our partners AIU – Australian Institute of Ultrasound and Istih, in addition to our annual scholarship we're also able to bring 1 Emergency Physician from Vanuatu over to The Gold Coast to train at AIU-Australian Institute of Ultrasound .
This initiative is of the back of Dr. Jonathan “Jono” Henry's time in Vanuatu after he was asked by the Vanuatu Ministry of Health to assist with emergency services in their country.
