This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Emergency Medicine in Turkey. Established in Izmir in 1991 by Dr. John Fowler and Dr Namık Çevik, rector of Dokuz Eylul University (DEU) in 1991, Emergency Medicine has now grown to serve almost all patients in Turkey with more than 500 attendings, 100 faculty and 1000 residents. To celebrate the many achievements of the Emergency Medicine, DEU planned and hosted a meeting and we were there for you as Acilci.Net.
You can listen how a discipline was founded from its founders and first physicans (now professors). Check the videos below. Unfortunately, in Turkish.
