The Department of Emergency Medicine (EM) at AUBMC is one of the busiest Emergency Departments (ED) in Lebanon seeing 5-year-average annual volume of 54000 patient visits. ED physicians, nurses and ancillary staff are highly experienced and trained in emergency medical care and provide timely, high quality care to patients with acute illnesses or injuries. The ED has full-time, round-the-clock, attending level physician coverage by physicians trained in the treatment of all acute care illnesses from medical and surgical cases to pediatric and obstetrics acute care.
In June 2012, the Department of Emergency Medicine established its first properly supervised EM training program in Lebanon. The program is a four-year curriculum with five categorical positions. All core faculty are emergency medicine trained physicians. Trainees are exposed to the spectrum of acute care illnesses in adult and pediatric patients and have structured, didactic sessions and hands-on workshops. In addition to a robust clinical experience, the program offers integrated research and administrative rotations that are meant to develop skills required to become leaders in the field.
In the fall of 2015, the program earned its ACGME-I accreditation, and thus became the first Emergency Medicine Graduate Education Program in the country and one of a few in the region to receive this prestigious certification.
