Emergency Medical Services Department (EMSD)
Established in 2013, the Department of Emergency Medicine & Trauma comprises a team of dedicated physicians, nurses, emergency medical technicians, ECG technicians, dressers and other healthcare professionals committed to providing medical care to the rich diversity of people in Puducherry and beyond. EM department treats on an average of 450 patients per day. Emergency department is equipped with X-rays, ultrasound, CT scan, ECG and biochemical point of care laboratory functioning 24x7.
The Department of Emergency Medicine & Trauma at JIPMER has a fully recognised residency program in Emergency Medicine. The MD Emergency Medicine Program enrolled its inaugural class in April 2014. Continued growth, development and improvement establishes JIPMER Emergency Medicine residency as a top program. With a goal of developing leaders and outstanding clinicians in the specialty of emergency medicine, residents are taught to recognize, evaluate, and manage the full spectrum of undifferentiated patients presenting to the Emergency Department. JIPMER, by virtue of its service to an under-served population, affords the opportunity to care for large numbers of critically ill and injured patients. Emphasis is on academic rigor and delivery of quality emergency care. The clinical exposure is intense but, equally important, the educational environment is supportive and the program actively seeks to keep the resident mentally healthy.
