Our mission in the Emergency Medicine Specialty Training is to emphasize on the acquisition of the ideal roles and competencies a specialist is expected to fulfill. These roles and competencies have been incorporated into the postgraduate residency training program. There are 6 competencies that we want to stress on: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism and Systems-Based Practice. All our residents in Oman Medical Specialty Board – Emergency Medicine- will be evaluated (and potentially examined) based on these competencies.

“To achieve quality emergency health care through excellence in emergency medicine training.”



The specific pre-requisite knowledge or skill that the resident in emergency medicine should acquire in order to achieve the terminal education objectives in each of the core content categories will determine the program education objectives. These educational objectives should be identified prior to each rotational experience and in developing formal teaching program. Formal assessment that these objectives have been achieved should be provided through end of rotation evaluations and in-training examination of each resident.

During the course of education program, the resident must acquire and demonstrate satisfactory competence in knowledge, clinical skills, technical skills, and administrative skills and attitudes consistent with the practice of the breadth and depth of emergency medicine.
