Controversy over EMRI (108) Ambulance Service

Emergency Management & Research Institute, A Scam too?

Those who have been crying foul against various state governments patronising the 108 EMRI ambulance service have now lodged a fresh police complaint alleging theft of public money by the Rajus through EMRI. The `108' ambulance service has curiously been patronised by 12 state governments across the country, with eight handpicking it without even floating tenders.

New Notice Board

We at EmergencyMedicine.in are pleased to announce the start of our new NOTICE BOARD & CLASSIFIEDS

The explosive growth & awareness of emergency medicine in India has generated immense interest in various courses, workshops and training programs like BLS, ACLS, PALS, ATLS, EMTC, MCEM, etc. The only way for interested people to know the dates of various courses & workshops happening in India is to call up individual institutes at random.

Our intention was to streamline this process of finding the type of course, location & latest dates of a particular course or workshop. Not only this, we also want institutes to find the right emergency physicians, nurses & EMTs (paramedics) for their emergency departments through our classifieds ads. We had this idea in our development pipeline for the last few weeks and finally managed to launch it now.

Any classified advertisement related to emergency medicine, emergency medical services (EMS or prehospital care) or EM subspecialties in India can be placed here. Dates for courses, workshops, exams and other schedules & announcements can also be forwarded to us for placement.

I hope that this notice board will also add to the growth of emergency medicine in India in the coming years.

All appropriate advertisements forwarded to us will be put up for FREE! till January 31st 2009.

White Paper on Academic Emergency Medicine in India

White Paper on Academic Emergency Medicine in India:
INDO-US Joint Working Group (JWG)

Emergency Medicine(EM) is a new discipline for India. As Medical Council of India (MCI) makes progress in recognizing
the need to develop EM residency training programs in India it is important that there exist an established training
model for future faculty, residents and medical students. This INDO-US white paper makes a serious attempt to
recognize the opportunities and challenges in developing academic emergency medicine in India. The contents
of this white paper address the overall scenario and are not targeted towards a person, physician, body, hospital
or any other associated entity. This paper emphasizes the importance of MCI recognized training in Emergency
Medicine for physicians in India.

Contributions to the Development of Emergency Medicine in India

From Editor's Desk - Editorial June-July 2008

Go to an emergency medicine conference in the US and mingle into posh NRI crowd. The most common question asked by people is Does Emergency Medicine exist in India? You are likely to hear the answer coming from an Indian living in the US that EM does not exist in India, but we are doing everything we can to bring the specialty to that country.

Our newest specialty in the field of medicine and trauma has many self proclaimed owners. They speak of a scenario which existed more than a decade ago and many of them have never even stepped into India recently.

Emergency medicine and allied services is a multibillion dollar industry for a country. You are very wrong if you think that affiliation to an Institute in US comes for free and that they are supporting us. Indian institutes have the capacity to pay in hundreds of thousand of dollars per year for affiliations and this is pure business.
