Brazil Recognizes Emergency Medicine as a Specialty!

On September 16 emergency medicine became recognized as a speciality by the Federal Council of Medicine, the recognizing body for medical specialities in Brazil . Emergency medicine is now a recognized speciality in Brazil! It took over 20 years of work by Brazilian emergency physicians to get to this point. This is a giant leap forward for emergency medicine in Brazil.
