Emergency Medicine in India

Contributions to the Development of Emergency Medicine in India
From Editor's Desk - Editorial June-July 2008(http://current.emergencymedicine.in/news.php)

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

Emergency medicine is exploding into India

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.

Secondly, EM / EMS is also a huge opportunity for organizatons and people with vested interests to make a great deal money and fame. Some institutes are ready to put many innocent careers at stake to do this. There is nobody to enforce strict regulations in emergency medicine in India as of today.

But this doesn't mean every organization starting a new EM course has decided to ruin people's careers. It upto the person joining any academic program to do a through check on the course details and teaching faculty. The Society of Emergency Medicine, India (SEMI), which has been recognised internationally, is the central body which governs a small aspect of the growth of emergency medicine in our country.

After travelling all over the country, visiting different department and hospitals, as well as attending various national and international EM conferences, I find that emergency physicians in India are divided into the following groups:(to read more click following link-http://current.emergencymedicine.in/readarticle.php?article_id=14

Some more options after MBBS excluding PG


Now a days its more profitable to work privately than to join a teaching job in a medical college or a government sponsored PHC job. If you are sure that you don't intend to go into these above 2 jobs categories then there are lots of valid foreign degrees as well as Indian certificate courses which are at par or even better than an MCI recognized degree. Since you already have a basic MBBS degree, you are legally qualified to practice medicine anywhere in Indian. Some of the options available are:

3.WHO approved" MD/MS degree from USAIM
4.WHO approved" MD/ MS degree from Nepal
5.WHO approved" MD/ MS degree from Manipal Hospital
