With the recognition of Emergency Medicine as an independent specialty the doors have opened for medical colleges to pursue initiatives to create free standing academic departments of Emergency Medicine which can house post graduate residency training programs in Emergency Medicine. There is also an increased focus to on staffing emergency departments at hospitals across India with competent Emergency Medicine Physicians.
To initiate departments there is a need for trained clinicians who can embrace Emergency Medicine (A New discipline to India) as their specialty. To be competent clinicians these young emergency physicians will need to take on the task of educating themselves about the body of knowledge for Emergency Medicine. MCI/DNB/Internationally Recognized Clinicians from Emergency Medicine, Anesthesia, Internal Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics –Gynecology Pulmonology, Pediatrics, Orthopedics, and Family Medicine are eligible to pursue FACEE.
To facilitate the process of developing the science of emergency medical care “The Academic College of Emergency Experts” (ACEE) was founded in 2011.
The College is focused on creating Emergency HealthCare Experts who are competent to provide quality emergency care with a focus on patient safety.
The Fellowship of the College is awarded after intense coaching and testing and hence a Fellow of ACEE means a Leader who is Qualified to provide Quality Emergency Care.
The Competency Based Fellowship of the College is the Single Distinct Process and the Only Process by which a Candidate can be a part of the College.
The Academic College of Emergency Experts recognizes and hereby states that in India there are only two Recognized Post Graduate Degree Programs for Emergency Medicine.
The Two Programs are: MCI Recognized MD and NBE Recognized DNB in Emergency Medicine.
The College and its Fellows Stand by the Accrediting Bodies of National Importance namely MCI and NBE.
The College Commits to the development and progress of Quality Emergency Care for Emergency Patients.
