Emergency Medicine Career Information

Emergency Medicine, since 2009, is a newly recognized distinct medical specialty. The Medical Council of India saw the need for a reclassification of EM to ensure the necessary continued infrastructure growth in India as a post graduate program. Today an enormous need exists to educate more physicians to respond to life threatening events. This area of healthcare is growing at such an alarming rate that medical schools and universities even at full capacity are far from able to produce enough specialists to mitigate the growing needs. This crisis also exists in the United States, albeit to a lesser degree. Indian nationals seeking board certification in the US have multiple paths to pursue, unlike in the present situation in India. Both the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) have a clear course of training in place with a proven track record.

Whether you pursue an EM specialty in India or have the opportunity to study in the US, your acquired skills will remain in exceeding strong demand for at least the next two decades and likely beyond.
