Acute care doctors must a broad range of clinical knowledge and skills to manage patients of all ages. Emergency medical physicians consult with patients, diagnose problems, resuscitate patients, perform surgeries and act as the main point of contact for leading and coordinating emergency care.

Emergency medicine specialists have earned both a bachelor’s degree and an MD (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)). The next step is two-year minimum clinical residency through the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM).
