About the EMBBS Emergency Medicine and Primary Care Home Page

EMBBS (the Emergency Medicine Bulletin Board System) was created back in September of 1994 by Ash Nashed, M.D. and Glenn Fink, M.D. Our goal was and remains to enhance communication between physicians and to develop a medium that brings the benefits of computer technology to emergency and primary care physicians. Along the way, we stumbled onto the World Wide Web and were quite impressed with its potential for serving as an educational and administrative resource for physicians. Hence this web server.

We feel that computer technology can best serve physicians by providing rapid and inexpensive communications as well as easy, centralized access to large volumes of information and resources. While the cumulative knowledge and experience of emergency and primary care physicians is vast, this tremendous resource unfortunately remains largely untapped. Until now, it was impossible to do so. The technology is now here, however, and we feel that it's time for us to join together.

By getting our pages on the WWW, we feel that we can serve our fellow physicians by providing useful collections of relevant clinical photographs, radiographs, EKG's, lectures and job opportunities in addition to timely, clinical information in a way that is very accessible and easy to update. We would also like to point to the more useful and relevant other sites on the Web.

We would like to encourage physicians internationally to contribute to these resources so that we may all benefit from them. Additionally, we have an unprecedented opportunity to share information across national borders in a most unhindered manner, which we believe should be utilized.

Thanks for your interest. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, ideas or if you would like to contribute to this website.
