As a service for the International Federation for Emergency Medicine, a task force of the Specialty Implementation Committee wrote this manuscript of guidelines for developing a National Emergency Medicine (EM) specialty organisation. This manuscript offers structural and procedural considerations for creating or developing an EM specialty organisation in a country or region that currently does not have one. It was written in response to requests for aid in developing a country's specialty of EM. International EM leaders with experience in the development of national organisations have reviewed these guidelines.
