Emergency Medicine (EM) is a newly developed medical specialty that spreads at a phenomenal pace throughout the globe. EM plays an essential role in healthcare and in many countries, serves as a safety net providing the necessary healthcare to patients who require immediate medical attention. Recent worldwide urbanization, economic changes, disasters, aging populations and worsening health care systems have led to an increased awareness of the need for organized, well trained emergency care throughout the world.
