We all know the adage 'Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.'
Peter P. Taillac, M.D., and Vijay Kandula, M.D., M.P.H., AAHIVS, have put the phrase into remarkable practice. The pair have developed a "train-the-trainer" course that's modernizing emergency care in Karnataka, India and is now slated for use in other developing countries.
"Emergency medicine is a brand new concept in India," explained Taillac. "Emergency care skills are not well taught or represented in the Indian medical school curriculum."
