Emergency medicine also known as accident & emergency is a medical specialty concerned with the care of illness or injuries requiring immediate attention. This field of practice is based on the knowledge & skills required to prevent, diagnose & manage acute/urgent aspects of illness & injury affecting patients of all age groups with a full spectrum of undifferentiated physical & behavioral disorders. It further encompasses an understanding of the development of pre-hospital & in-hospital EMS & skills necessary for its development. In recent decades emergency medicine has been recognized as a specialty in its own right with its training programs & academic posts. The specialty is now a popular choice among medical students.
