The Emergency Medicine Residency Training Program (EMRTP) in Qatar conducts weekly didactic teaching activities based on syllabus from the Arab Board of Emergency Medicine, but with the accreditation by Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education International (ACGMEI) in 2013, we set out to validate the teaching activities against an internationally recognized curriculum of the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) known as the EM Model.

We undertook a full review of all the teaching topics undertaken throughout the academic year of 2012–13 and found a moderate degree of compliance with the ABEM curriculum. Following this review, we identified developmental points addressed during the last three years. A further review was repeated for the academic year 2015–16 to ensure ongoing improvement.

The results show improved content delivery. The overall compliance increased by 16% (58% to 74%) in the domain of medical knowledge and patient care and a staggering 48% (46% to 94%) in the other competencies.

On the whole the EMRTP annual curriculum has achieved a strong emphasis on the medical knowledge and patient care competencies (including procedures & skills). Further improvement was noted in other core competencies.
