What does FACEE stand for?
It is the Fellowship of the Academic College of the Emergency Experts (ACEE).
What is the Role of ACEE-INDIA?
MCI/DNB has recognized Emergency Medicine as a specialty and has encouraged hospitals to start full-fledged EM departments and has allowed Medical colleges and teaching hospitals to initiate the creation of Academic Departments of Emergency Medicine across India.
EM as a specialty is new to India. As a science EM is a collage of all disciplines as it is targeting towards addressing acute issues across existing faculties of medicine and surgery including pediatrics, anesthesia, orthopedics, OB-GYN, psychiatry and pulmonology. This leaves EM with no parent discipline as no discipline is immune from the concept of Emergencies related to their discipline.
TThis fact is both a challenge and an opportunity because firstly we will need trained emergency clinicians which can be drawn from any discipline to train and staff emergency departments until we can have enough residency trained and qualified emergency physicians.
With the advent and growth of EM the young emergency clinicians will need to be brought to speed about Emergency Knowledge from other disciplines. Example an Orthopedician wanting to teach EM or practice EM will have to learn EKG, management of Myocardial infarction etc.
To facilitate this process and award identity ACEE is being founded with the Fellowship acting as an identity to create an Elite Group of Pioneers who have gone through the process of Learned Learning qualifying to be Academic and Clinical Leaders in Teaching, Researching, Innovating and Treating at Departments of Emergency Medicine across India.
Is it Mandatory that every emergency clinician is FACEE ?
ACEE thrives to be an Elite Group of pioneers who believe in the practice of Quality Emergency Care and are committed to innovation, research, and education in healthcare. It is an independent Elite Forum of Experts who are recognized because of their commitment and who have been qualified through a process laid by the framework of their Platform which is their college (ACEE). Fellowship ACEE is highly recommended for developing and growing this new academic discipline in India.
What is the "ACEE-BOARD REVIEW COURSE”?
ACEE Board Review Course is a Mandatory Course needed as one of the steps towards FACEE. Exact Dates and Venue Details will be updated in due course. It is mandatory to complete this Certified Course in order graduate as a FACEE. The Course focusses on covering the complete body of knowledge of Emergency Medicine.
