Emergency medicine or EM is a branch of medicine specializing in the treatment of acute injuries and illnesses that need immediate medical attention. Emergency medicine doctors or practitioners treat patients who need instant, urgent treatment. They must be able to make quick decisions and lead a team of other medical professionals during intensely stressful situations.
In India, Emergency medicine was recognized as a separate specialty by Medical Council of India (MCI) from July 2009. The career is rewarding and has a bright prospect in the near future.
The (U.K.) Royal College of General Practitioners, Apollo Hospitals Group & Medvarsity jointly offer One-Year Diploma in Emergency Medicine to the medical practitioners enabling them to become a specialist in treatment of emergent conditions.
