Emergency medicine in Qatar has been developing at a rapid pace in order to provide emergency care to the expanding population. Along with the main Emergency Department at Hamad General Hospital, satellite emergency departments operate at Al Wakra, Al Khor and The Cuban Hospitals. Additionally, 13 adult and pediatric emergency walk-in clinics are spread across the country and are fully operational and heavily utilized.

The International Conference in Emergency Medicine and Public Health-Qatar (ICEP-Q 2016) has been carefully designed to promote the sharing of best practices in emergency medicine and public health. Through its theme, Moving Forward Together, the conference aims to bring together leading practitioners, academia, scientists, educators and administrators in order to share their experiences about all aspects of emergency medicine and public health. With up to 1,000 delegates expected, this event will also provide an important forum to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends and challenges encountered in the fields of emergency medicine and public health.

More information, including the conference agenda, can be found on the ‘Conference’ page of this website. This five-day conference will provide a platform to share experiences, foster collaborations and evaluate emerging ideas and technologies. I strongly encourage you to attend this important event.
