Undergraduate Emergency Medicine Education (UEME) is an undervalued area in the development of Emergency Medicine around the globe. If you read the articles regarding Emergency Medicine clerkships or if you travel to different countries and discuss their undergraduate education with local leaders, you can easily recognize the gaps between countries.
Today, there are few countries in the world that have appropriately designed UEME programs in their medical schools. The majority of the countries (even some developed ones) have no guidelines, curricula, or enough educational resources. In addition, there are limited resources (textbooks, websites) for medical students/interns which covers their educational needs based on current UEME recommendations.
This book is a product of an international collaboration of emergency physicians and Emergency Medicine enthusiasts. It intends to show that we can produce a free book and resource if we work collaboratively. It is a product of endless hours of hard work of all Editors, authors, and contributors. We thank all of them for trusting us in this journey.
This is just a start to build up better Emergency Medicine resources for medical students and interns, especially for developing countries. It is a continuous process, and there are a lot of areas that we need to improve in this book. Therefore, we are looking forward to your feedback and collaboration.
We also believe that international UEME will reach the minimum required standards in all countries based on the endless collaboration of emergency medicine professionals.
There is continuous work for the iEM book process. We applied multiple editing and reviewing steps. We continue this process for many chapters with the feedback from our readers and contributors.
We used original images, illustrations, diagrams provided by the Editors and authors as much as possible. However, there were chapters that we needed to use some copyright free material, Creative Commons licensed images, illustrations, and diagrams with attribution to the original owners. We are continuously searching for better images, illustrations, and diagrams. If you have copyright free clinical images, illustrations or diagrams, please share them with us. We would like to use them with your credentials in the book, online archive, and website.
