The face behind one of the most widely sought out acclaimed books, the Moussa Issa book has now become a name synonymous with success in the FRCEM Exams.
Dr Issa’s journey started from a remote area of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Here is the quintessential story of a small-town boy who makes it prominent with sheer determination and hard work.
Raised in and educated in French as his first language, he graduated from the University of Kinshasa Medical School in 2006. After his medical graduation, he flew to South Africa to complete 24 months of medical internship with the Mafikeng Provincial Hospital.
From 2010 to 2012, Dr Issa worked as SHO in Urology and General Surgery. He then served as Registrar in General Surgery in the city of Cape Town. His extensive background in the surgical fields would later lay the foundation for the array of trauma cases he would see as an Emergency physician, supplies him with the added advantage to masterfully treat the most complicated traumas.
Always ready to grow, and driven by his desire & appetite for learning Medicine in all its aspects, Dr Issa found the best way to achieve that would be to switch to emergency Medicine. Emergency Medicine granted the transition and the path which would enable his vast knowledge and skills to the fullest.
Therefore, he would first need to clear the FRCEM exams. With a limited number of resources and with just one book available in the market at that time, Dr Issa took upon himself the mammoth task of compiling his notes according to the equally intensive & exhaustive syllabus. Hence, the birth of the highly acclaimed FRCEM Exam series of books (FRCEM Primary All-In-One Notes, FRCEM Intermediate Short Answer Question, FRCEM Final Critical Appraisal and FRCEM Final Clinical Short Answer Question). To date,  the books are being used worldwide by ED Doctors in their preparation for these exams. Upon completing his MRCEM in 2017; It took him only six months to complete the four parts of the FRCEM final exams, granting him the Fellowship of the Royal Emergency Medicine College (FRCEM) in 2019. In addition to his training in Emergency Medicine, Dr Moussa Issa holds a Master in Public Health from the University of Limerick in Ireland.


He is enthusiastic about biomedical research and medical education, with a special interest in implementing prehospital care in low-income countries, the reason why he has been offered a PhD position in the Public health and HealthCare Systems by the University of Lancaster from September 2021.
