Dr. Jennifer Bryan is an emergency physician at the University Health Network in Toronto. She is the Director of Operations of the Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration in Emergency Medicine (TAAAC-EM) and an Assistant Professor in the Division of Emergency Medicine at the University of Toronto. TAAAC-EM is an educational partnership established 10 years ago between the University of Toronto and Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia. It was created to support the development of a community of EM specialists in Ethiopia. The partnership is built on a collaboratively designed postgraduate curriculum delivered through one month teaching trips in Addis Ababa three times per year. To date the program has graduated more than 50 of Ethiopia’s first emergency medicine physicians. These graduates have gone on to establish three other postgraduate training sites in emergency medicine in Ethiopia, and have taken on leadership roles within their hospitals and national government.
