About the Society

Emergency Medicine Association of Turkey (EMAT) was established on May 25th in 1995 in the city of Izmir, Turkey. Emergency Medicine field was included into the “profession of medicine bylaws” as an independent medical specialty after being published at official newspaper of Turkey on April 30th in 1993 initially under the name of “First Aid and Emergency Care.” The first general assembly was held in the city of Izmir on October 18th in 1995. Through contributing to a lot of national and international scientific events, it was approved to add “Turkey” to our organization’s name with the cabinet decree of 2003/5660 on May 23rd in 2003. Since 1996, we have been the member of Turkish Medical Association, Medical Specialty Associations Coordination council. The mission of EMAT is to develop projects in Emergency Care Systems related fields -emergency rooms, prehospital emergency care, first aid, disaster management, emergency medicine residency training- and to support the improvement of this system in Turkey. For more information and details please check www.tatd.org.tr/en
