The Max Institute of Medical Excellence has signed an agreement with Britain's College of Emergency Medicine for conducting an examination which tests the level of expertise of a doctor wishing to enter the field of emergency medicine, a release said Monday.
Emergency medicine is a medical speciality involving care for adult and paediatric patients with acute illnesses or injuries which require immediate medical attention. The examination called Membership Examination of the College of Emergency Medicine (MCEM) tests the level of expertise necessary for entry into higher specialist training in emergency medicine.
