Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC) and Children’s Hospital offer a wide variety of Emergency Care. And, through the Center for Prehospital Care, Education and Research (CPCER), this Care extends beyond the hospital walls – from the prehospital environment to various Loma Linda University mission outposts, and regional centers.
Additionally, the International Emergency Medicine fellowship trains physicians in the skills necessary to provide the highest levels of Care. Trained to assess a country's emergency health issues, design programs to meet those needs and develop the expertise required to implement programs abroad as well as integrate them into existing health systems, fellows focus on four basic arenas: emergency medicine clinical experience, education, public health projects, and research.
Through the creation of the Mobile Telemedicine Vehicle (MTV), the CPCER offers disaster and emergency care in the prehospital environment via Telemedicine consultation. The MTV also offers Tele-Radiology, as well as any of the specialty services that can be consulted through the Emergency Telemedicine Command Center, from LLUMC and Children’s Hospital. The MTV will typically staff an Advanced Practice Nurse, RN, Radiology technician, as well as other ancillary support staff for its deployment.
