Dr. Ian Crozier is a Vanderbilt-trained infectious diseases specialist originally from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Over the past six years, primarily through the Accordia Global Health Foundation and at the Infectious Diseases Institute (Kampala, Uganda), he has focused on developing clinical reasoning skills in African clinicians providing complex care in HIV/AIDS.
In August 2014, he was deployed by the World Health Organization to the Ebola Treatment Unit at Kenema General Hospital in Sierra Leone. After becoming infected, he was evacuated to Emory University Hospital, becoming critically ill, but emerging last October after a six week hospitalization. He has been called potentially the sickest Ebola survivor ever.
