Haiti Medical Education Project continues to partner with the CALS (Comprehensive Advanced Life Support) Global Program and partners in Haiti to train physicians and nurses in emergency medical training. Twenty-one (21) new CALS Providers and 6 new CALS Instructors were trained in Cap Haitien, Haiti August 15-19, 2016.
The CALS Essentials course teaches the CALS universal team approach to managing life-threatening injury and illness. CALS E providers learn to work together in a systematic way during cardiac, trauma, pediatric, obstetric and adult medical emergencies.
CALS Essentials (CALS-e) was designed for physicians and nurses in places like Haiti that have limited resources.
On the footsteps of the first CALS-Essentials course held in Cap Haitien, Haiti in 2015 — CALS returned to St. Marc, Haiti on April 13-15, 2016 to continue our international efforts in providing emergency medical skills in third world countries with few or limited resources available. Twenty-two Haitian physicians and nurses from six different facilities completed the course. The consensus among the consulted Haitian medical leaders is that CALS-Essentials is an important strategy for improving emergency medical care throughout Haiti.
Haiti Medical Education Project (HME) and Comprehensive Advanced Life Support (CALS) plan to continue their partnership to bring this training in emergency care to all regions of Haiti. HME translated the CALS course curriculum into French.

In October 2014, a new initiative began for CALS to develop a global basic life support course. Instructors from Africa and Haiti converged in Minneapolis, Minnesota to take the CALS Provider Course, Trauma Module and Instructor Course as a foundation to produce a CALS Global course.
After many months of hard work, CALS is ready to launch this new training program, called Global Comprehensive Basic Life Support, in Cap Haitien, Haiti, on May 20-22, 2015.
Haiti Medical Education Project (HME) and Comprehensive Advanced Life Support (CALS) are partnering to bring this new training in emergency care to Haiti. HME will translate the course curriculum into French.
