INTRODUCTION
 
The Emergency Medicine Division of the University Hospital of the West Indies (Mona Campus) is staffed by six consultants, five of whom are trained emergency medicine physicians, two chief residents who are fully trained emergency physicians, DM Emergency Medicine programme residents, non-programme residents, senior house officers, specialist emergency medicine nurses, non-specialist nurses, emergency room technicians, patient care assistants, administrative and janitorial staff. The development of emergency medicine in Jamaica as a specialty has been documented previously (1−3). The faculty has engaged in various courses over the years and, at present, members are trained in a wide range of specialty areas inclusive of research methods, sexual assault examination, sports medicine, trauma (4) and sonography. This has led to related publications, some of which appear in this issue of the West Indian Medical Journal.
