Did you know that our Technical Team monitors this website on a daily basis? Yes, we do. We check pages randomly, look for errors, screen for viruses & malware, review our server logs and do a whole bunch of things. We were recently receiving malicious internet traffic on our Asia-Pacific server which had slowed down our website. We have fixed and reported that now.

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be conducting important website maintenance work, like updating pages (only html code, not the readable content), performing lots of minor and a few major upgrades to the core website, conduct accessibility, functionality and security checks, collect performance stats, backup data, and some more stuff like that. We will not be shutting down the site, but you may notice page or browser errors here and there. There is a small but definite possibility that you may not be able to reach our website at all. In such a case, just come back after a couple of hours.

Remember, we are doing all this only to ensure our website content remains accessible to you. Always!

Making of New Medical Specialty - A Policy Analysis of the Development of Emergency Medicine in India

Journal Article!

Reference/share this article - https://www.emergencymedicine.in/current/news.php?readmore=204

This article, a very lengthy commentary primarily based on interview responses and observational data, makes a good read to those who are curious about the history of development of emergency medicine in India. Some useful information can be found. It throws light about the growth of EM residency programs in India, people who were responsible for them, and their conflicts. However, there seem to be severe limitations in the study and the article fizzes off badly without any actionable points.

MCI Discriminates DNB-EM Doctors for Academic Positions in Medical Colleges

MCI Discriminates DNB-EM Doctors for Academic Positions in Medical Colleges
07-Mar-2018

A detailed look at the Teachers Eligibility Criteria 1998 published by the Medical Council of India (MCI) last year reveals a massive discrimination against doctors who have gained their DNB-EM from non-MCI recognised institutes. Majority of the DNB seats in all specialties, including EM, are in large private and not-for-profit hospitals which do not come under the purview of MCI. However the National Board of Examinations (NBE) which governs the DNB programs, follows the same procedures for inspection and assessment for both MCI and non-MCI recognised institutes.

The Teachers Eligibility Criteria is a very cryptic and confusing document. Hence MCI released a FAQ recently regarding this which clarifies their stand. Have a look at it. It is very obvious that the MCI has divided the DNB-EM qualified doctors into two distinct groups, those who are directly eligible for academic positions, and those who need to work for atleast 3-4 years in a MCI recognised institute before they are eligible. This additional requirement of MCI recognised experience has further complicated the situation in some states like Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. DNB candidates from these states, after their 3 year training period, need to complete 1 year of compulsory rural service before they receive their DNB qualification.

This issue, which is a clear setback for both the development of EM in India, and the individual careers of these doctors, is currently being haggled in the offices of NBE and MCI. The Supreme Court which recently received this grievance, quickly dismissed the writ petition (See Petition) .
