Michael Reindl, Head of the Department of Acute and Emergency Medicine, AMEOS Klinik St. Clemens Oberhausen

Our department support the EM Day 2021 from Germany:
We believe in this year`s campaign theme: We are there for you and it`s true
All emergency care professionals are always there for you.
Patients can come to us 24/7/365. Even in the middle of the night or when we are understaffed. We are there for you even hidden behind a mask in such a huge pandemic
To make this happen the EM system is relying on certified and skilled professionals, because competence makes the difference. We learn for you, we train for you and this will never stop.
We are there for you, competent and ready for everything, in the ED.

"Ahi Emergency Talks" for the support and development of young doctors

25 May 2021

Dr Ömer Jaradat from Kırşehir Ahi Evran University Emergency Medicine Department (Ahi Acil), Kırşehir, Turkey is letting us know that: Kırşehir is a small city in the middle of Anatolia and has many rural areas with initial primary hospitals. The doctors who work there are mostly fresh graduated general practitioners. They mostly get shocked with the difficulties they face there. Therefore we decided to start 'Ahi Emergency Talks', a local emergency medicine meeting held twice a year to develop and share the last information for doctors in rural areas of Kırşehir. The inititative will be launched on EM-Day and will be celebrated by a meeting dinner.
