Course Description

The emergency medicine specialization is the only specialization that allows you to excel across a wide array of clinical areas in the shortest period of time. Emergency physicians are often celebrated as saviours in a number of critical situations. This course not only allows you to play this critical role, but also expand your clinical expertise.

In addition to the online learning, the course also includes an intensive 12-month contact program at a leading corporate hospital to give you a much-needed clinical and hands-on experience on a variety of systemic emergencies. Historically, 95% of students graduating from this program are recruited into the hospital in which they attend their contact program.

This course will enable you to deliver improved medical and surgical care not only in the emergency room but also in the ICU and other areas such as trauma, cardiac, toxicology, and environmental emergencies. Thus, this course offers exposure to all clinical departments, enabling you to confidently handle cases in a clinical setting.

The curriculum covers medical and surgical emergencies in a system-wise manner.  

We at strive to equip every physician with the ability to fast-track their career and enable them to better serve the communities in which they practice. Join us and let us impact healthcare through education.
