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.
