Current emergency care in Ghana is sub-optimal with significant delays to definitive care and high morbidity and mortality. The Ghanaian government has recently invested in physical infrastructure for emergency care at major teaching hospitals, but the human resources to provide care are inadequate. To address this need, the Ghana Emergency Medicine Collaborative has proposed an innovative training program focused on medical students, nurses, and residents with the formation of a new faculty for sustainable training. This program will train emergency medicine personnel in injury and acute medical illness management, expose trainees to research methodology, administrative and leadership aspects of emergency medicine. The Ghana Emergency Medicine Collaborative is a joint project between Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, University of Michigan, Ghana Ministry of Health, Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons, and Ghana Ambulance Service.

This sequence provides the information and opportunities necessary for students to acquire integrated knowledge of the structure and function of the endocrine and reproductive systems in humans. Although all of the biological systems are clearly interrelated, the endocrine and reproductive systems are intimately linked. Much of what you learn about hormonal control and steroid biochemistry of the endocrine system will be referred to and used in teaching reproductive physiology.

The materials in this resource represent a curriculum for teaching effective patient communication to dentistry students. These techniques could be useful for other healthcare providers, as well: medical students, nursing students, public health providers, and in-practice health care providers. There are two main types of materials here: performance keys and videos. Performance Keys are text documents that articulate key patient interaction skills, and give examples of more and less effective techniques. The videos in this resource are staged interactions between a faculty member and a standardized patient. There are two versions of each interaction given - one that follows the performance keys, and one that does not. The differences in patient responsiveness, patient-provider rapport, and the resulting treatment plan are dramatic.

The Patients and Populations sequence focuses on genetics, principles of disease, epidemiology, information gathering and assessment. The sequence features two modules: Medical Genetics and Medical Decision-Making. In this module, students will: Construct well-defined clinical questions from case scenarios, designed to improve general knowledge about a topic, and to help make decisions regarding the use of diagnostic tests. Understand the differences between foreground and background questions and the implications for the types of information resources best suited to answer these questions. Become familiar with the U-M information environment, and learn to effectively search several core biomedical resources to answer specific clinical questions. Develop an understanding of the basic foundations of biostatistics, research design and epidemiology to begin to apply scientific data to the understanding of clinical conditions. Effectively and logically apply probabilistic reasoning to diagnostic questions that arise in patient case scenarios.

HMP 607 is the third in a three-course sequence intended to impart to generalist administrators the knowledge of finance and accounting necessary to manage health care organizations. The first course, HMP 608, covers financial accounting. The second course, HMP 606, focuses on managerial accounting topics. This third course concentrates on corporate finance topics. It aims to impart an understanding of how finance theory and practice can inform the decision-making of the health care firm. As such, HMP 607 is most appropriately considered a corporate finance course, as opposed to a course in financial markets. In addition, it will integrate corporate finance and accounting theories, institutional knowledge of health care finance, and applications to specific problems.

Measuring Health Disparities is designed to be accessible to a broad audience of practitioners across all sectors of the public health workforce. In contains audio and interactive elements and focuses on some basic issues for public health practice - how to understand, define, and measure health disparity. The material is divided into four parts. Parts One and Two review what health disparities are, how they are defined, and provide and overview of common issues faced in measuring health disparities. Part Three is technical and introduces users to a range of health disparity measures, providing advantages and disadvantages of each. Part Four discusses how best to use different measures to communicate and evaluate health disparity in our communities. Parts Three and Four are more technical and, though not necessary, it is helpful to have a background in statistics, epidemiology or other sciences for ease of understanding.
In 2009, the University of Michigan Department of Emergency Medicine working with global health partners at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons, and the Ghana Ministry of Health established the Ghana Emergency Medicine Collaborative. The overall goal of the collaborative is to improve the provision of emergency care in Ghana through the development of physician, nursing and medical student training programs. This NIH-Fogarty International Center funded project also explores the use of new educational modalities such as open educational resources to provide education in Ghana. As part of this project, a 5-day Advanced Emergency Trauma Course (AETC) was constructed utilizing curricular materials from existing U.S. based emergency medicine residencies with modification to the available resources of developing Low-Middle Income Countries (LMICs) such as Ghana. The course, which was designed by University of Michigan and University of Utah Emergency Medicine Faculty includes 20 hours of didactic teaching material in open educational resource format, low-cost simulation models for procedural training and assessment tools. Attached are the full 20 hours of didactic materials in OER format.
