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.

Emergency Medicine is Exploding into India

From Editor's Desk - Editorial May 2008

The enquiries made by enthusiastic doctors in India wanting to take up emergency medicine as their career made me think about a very disturbing trend. As Emergency Medicine explodes into India there are two types of interests expressed by organizations and people.

Firstly, EM can make a real difference to the hospital, patients and healthcare of a community in general. EM recognition can lead to lives saved. Its a new specialty which gives opportunity for EM physicians, EM nursing, Emergency medical technicians (paramedics), etc to work and contribute in hospitals and to the society. EM also pays well.
