Following emergency medicine residency training, Dr. Mould-Millman pursued dual fellowship training in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Global Emergency Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine. His current global health research and projects focus on innovative approaches to low-resource prehospital education, clinical outcomes and effectiveness research, predominantly in sub-Saharan Africa.
 
He is actively engaged in strengthening community-based emergency response, developing novel prehospital assessment strategies, and improving outcomes in interfacility emergency referrals. To accomplish this, Dr. Mould-Millman partners internationally with several academic, government and private healthcare and EMS agencies, most extensively in Ghana and South Africa. Projects from these successful collaborations have resulted in several peer-reviewed publications and international conference presentations. In 2013, Dr. Mould-Millman Chaired the African Federation for Emergency Medicine’s 2nd Prehospital Consensus Conference, resulting in landmark consensus paper regarding development and advocacy for effective African out-of-hospital emergency care systems. He is currently leading an expert panel towards reaching consensus in standardization of African prehospital education and standards of care.
