NEMBRIC 2018 was over 50 hours of rigorous and well-structured academic extravaganza, to give the participants a complete overview of various academic topics in Emergency Medicine. The sessions were well prepared and delivered by faculty in a very interactive way. The course was attended by around 100 participants converging from various parts of the country. These included MD and DNB residents in emergency medicine, practicing emergency physicians, departmental heads, surgeons, anaesthesiologists, respiratory physicians, internists and paediatricians. Catering to the needs of such diverse audience was a challenge which was well taken by the organising body. Strenuous effort put in by the speakers was evident by the feedback from the participants during interactive sessions. The course particularly benefited the physicians who are training in emergency medicine. They were pleased to attend the same and appreciated the efforts put in by the course faculty.

The AIIMS Department of Emergency Medicine,and National Board of Examinations under the leadership of Dr Praveen Aggarwal, were very pleased to host the 5-day event which was well appreciated by all faculty and participants.

Demand and participation in NEMBRIC has been showing a steep rise every year, which itself is a tell-tale sign of successful academic endeavours put in by the faculty and organisers, and increasing interest and awareness about academic emergency medicine among various medical disciplines. Members from all the strata of medical education, ranging from residents to professors come to a common platform and take back pearls from the academic feast called NEMBRIC.

NEMBRIC 2018 brought to light the vision of Dr Rashmikant Dave, Honorary Executive Director of National Board of Examinations (NBE)and Dr Sagar Galwankar, CEO, INDUSEM.


Dr. G. Vishwa Reddy, Assistant Professor, NIMS, Hyderabad

It gives me great pleasure to say that I have attended NEMBRIC2018 conducted at New Delhi. The five day board review course is probably one of the few unique programmes   which provide an intense exposure to the core curriculum and the latest updates and guidelines in Emergency Medicine by giving access to thought leaders from apex premier institutions and in strengthening our academics.

This intense teaching programme lead by the eminent faculty was a highly interactive session which covered all the essential areas of Emergency Medicine. The entire national and international faculty gave their best in selecting thought provoking topics and formats, organizing the sessions and clearing all the doubts with great patience. All the delegates felt very happy interacting with pioneers from various fields together contributing to the growth of EM. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to INDUSEM, ACEE, EMA and NBE for making the programme worthwhile and setting high standards for academic EM in India.

Dr. Sakshi Yadav, PGY2 Emergency Medicine, AIIMS, New Delhi

The programme was overall very good especially the lectures on Toxicology, Trauma, ECG, Gastroenterology, ultrasound, neurology & Pediatrics. Some lectures like one on Abuse and Assault gave an insight in to the prevalent social issues in addition to the subject theory. I thank Dr Bonnie who painstakingly took the task of coordinating the whole academic extravaganza along with other course faculty and we, the participants, could benefit from the academic feast. I thank Dr Praveen Aggarwal sir for making it feasible for us residents to attend the course and for planning such wonderful sessions.

Dr. Prawal Shrimal, PGY1 Emergency Medicine, AIIMS, New Delhi

The course was great. A special shout-out to the young course faculty; Some of the topics were brilliantly taught and explained. I express heartfelt gratitude to Dr Praveen Aggarwal sir and Dr Bonnie Arquilla for making it happen, and getting together such amazing sessions. I would say that it wasmore than a perfect academic programme. I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it.
