SEMI Members Communication – Postponement of EMCON 2020 due to Covid-19

Dear SEMI Member

Greetings from SEMI

We hope you are all keeping safe in this pandemic times and appreciations to all members of SEMI who are the front liners in this fight against pandemic.

This year has been tough for all of us and many of our plans have to be put on hold or cancelled and we hope the situation improves soon in the coming months.

As you all know that the lock down and Disaster Act is in force across India, we are forced to postpone our annual national emergency medicine conference EMCON 2020. We will reassess the situation in February 2021 to plan a hybrid event based on the situation which will also help with our elections for board positions.

During this time we will continue to strengthen our membership drive and we hereby request all SEMI members who have not received their membership number/card to apply to get your card/number (with proof of membership fee paid).

All CCT EM students of the 2020-2023 batch, their fees included SEMI membership and they need not pay for membership separately.

Since the SEMI board elections are due this year, based on the SEMI constitution guidelines, it is decided by the executive chair and the board to postpone the elections by 3 months and hold the SEMI board elections in February 2021. The present board will continue in the interim period.

We are getting back on track with our second collaborative event with IFEM in 2020, the International E-journal clud this November for all EM trainees in India. We encourage all of you to actively participate in this E-meet. The registration is complimentary for all SEMI members.

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy.

For the SEMI National Board

Dr. S. Saravana Kumar

National General Secretary

Message from Vice-President of India

The Vice President of India is the second-highest constitutional office in India after the President.

Our Honorable Vice-President Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, has sent a message addressed to all emergency physicians, emergency nurses and emergency paramedics who are working in India, on the occasion of ACEM 2019.





I am happy to know that the Society of Emergency Medicine India (SEMI), is organizing the 10th Asian Conference of Emergency Medicine ACEM 2019 from November 7 -10, 2019 at The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel, Delhi.

Emergency Care and Emergency Medicine play a vital role in the health care system. The initial management and stabilization of a patient in need of emergency care is truly a specialty on its own and requires intensive training and resources. Very often, the availability of quality emergency care makes the difference between life and death.

I am sure, being one of the largest professional societies of Emergency Medicine, SEMI would play an important role in making the emergency care in our country more robust and professionally competent.

I am happy to note that several leading Emergency Care professionals of India and abroad would be participating in the conference and will deliberate and discuss various facets of this emerging field of Medicine.

I extend my greetings and congratulations to the organizers and the participants and wish the event all success.

(M. Venkaiah Naidu)

Invitation for ACEM 2019 at New Delhi

Dear Friends and Colleagues


It is a great pleasure and an honor to extend to you a warm invitation to attend the 10th Asian Conference on Emergency Medicine to be held November 7-10, 2019 at the Leela Ambience Convention Hotel, New Delhi, India.

The 2019 Conference is jointly organized by the Asian Society for Emergency Medicine (ASEM) and the Society for Emergency Medicine, India (SEMI).

The theme of the Conference “Affordable Care, Bridging Gaps, Creating Impact” will underpin the need for collaboration and cooperation of our global family of emergency medicine.

New Delhi, being the capital city of India is renowned for its varied heritage sites, from the Qutub Minar to the Red Fort. The city seamlessly blends the Old and the Newer parts of town. So while you may enjoy the mouth watering kebabs (recipes that are centuries old) at Old Delhi under the winter sun, you very well may find yourself enjoying the nightlife in one of the party hubs of Delhi the same day! The city is engulfed by the famous cities of Agra, Jaipur and Himalayan mountains are not that far away.

ACEM 2019 will provide a wonderful forum for you to refresh your knowledge base and explore the innovations in emergency medicine. The conference will feature some of the giants of emergency medicine, people you’ve heard and met before and some young guns too who are climbing the ladder to success very quickly!

The Conference will strive to offer plenty of networking opportunities, providing you with the opportunity to meet and interact with the leading emergency physicians, administrators, leaders, innovators, friends and colleagues as well as sponsors and exhibitors.

We hope you will join us for a symphony of outstanding science, and take a little extra time to enjoy the spectacular and unique beauty of this region.

With best wishes

Dr. Tamorish Kole
Organizing Chairman – ACEM 2019
President Elect – Asian Society for Emergency Medicine
