The Star of Life is a blue, six-pointed star, outlined with a white border which features the rod of Asclepius in the center. Internationally, it represents emergency medical services (EMS) units and personnel.

The six branches of the star are symbols of the six main tasks executed by rescuers all through the emergency chain:

1.    Detection: The first rescuers on the scene, usually untrained civilians or those involved in the incident, observe the scene, understand the problem, identify the dangers to themselves and the others, and take appropriate measures to ensure their safety on the scene (environmental, electricity, chemicals, radiation, etc.).

2.    Reporting: The call for professional help is made and dispatch is connected with the victims, providing emergency medical dispatch.

3.    Response: The first rescuers provide first aid and immediate care to the extent of their capabilities.

4.    On scene care: The EMS personnel arrive and provide immediate care to the extent of their capabilities on-scene.

5.    Care in Transit: The EMS personnel proceed to transfer the patient to a hospital via an ambulance or helicopter for specialized care. They provide medical care during the transportation.

6.    Transfer to Definitive care: Appropriate specialized care is provided at the hospital.

Medical education is education related to the practice of being a medical practitioner, either the initial training to become a doctor (i.e., medical school and internship) or additional training thereafter (e.g., residency and fellowship).

A person can also become a Paramedic/clinical officer /Physician assistant. This is what the many brave individuals in war zones and Africa do to save millions of lives.

Specialities usually fit into one of two broad categories: “Medicine” and “Surgery.” “Medicine” refers to the practice of non-operative medicine, and most subspecialties in this area require preliminary training in “Internal Medicine“.

Surgical specialties employ operative treatment. Surgery has many sub-specialties, including general surgery, cardiovascular surgery, colorectal surgery, neurosurgery, maxillofacial surgery, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngology, plastic surgery, oncologic surgery, transplant surgery, trauma surgery, urology, vascular surgery, and pediatric surgery.
Internal medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis, management and nonsurgical treatment of unusual or serious diseases, either of one particular organ system or of the body as a whole.


There are many subspecialities (or subdisciplines) of internal medicine:

•    Cardiology
•    Critical care medicine
•    Endocrinology
•    Gastroenterology
•    Geriatrics
•    Haematology
•    Hepatology
•    Infectious diseases
•    Nephrology
•    Oncology
•    Pediatrics
•    Pulmonology/Pneumology/Respirology
•    Rheumatology
•    Sleep medicine.

Other major specialties
The followings are some major medical specialties that do not directly fit into any of the above mentioned groups.
•    Anesthesiology
•    Dermatology
•    Emergency medicine is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of acute or life-threatening conditions, including trauma, surgical, medical, pediatric, and psychiatric emergencies.
•    Family medicine, family practice, general practice or primary care
•    Obstetrics and gynecology
•    Medical Genetics
•    Neurology
•    Ophthalmology

•    Pediatrics
•    Physical medicine and rehabilitation
•    Psychiatry
•    Preventive medicine is the branch of medicine concerned with preventing disease.
        o    Community health or public health
        o    Occupational medicine’s principal role is the provision of health advice to organizations and individuals to ensure that the highest standards of health and safety at work can be achieved and maintained.
        o    Aerospace medicine deals with medical problems related to flying and space travel.


Interdisciplinary fields
Some interdisciplinary sub-specialties of medicine include:
Addiction medicine deals with the treatment of addiction.
Biomedical Engineering is a field dealing with the application of engineering principles to medical practice.
Clinical pharmacology is concerned with how systems of therapeutics interact with patients.
Conservation medicine studies the relationship between human and animal health, and environmental conditions. Also known as ecological medicine, environmental medicine, or medical geology.
Diving medicine (or hyperbaric medicine) is the prevention and treatment of diving-related problems.
Forensic medicine deals with medical questions in legal context, such as determination of the time and cause of death.
Laser medicine involves the use of lasers in the diagnostics and/or treatment of various conditions.
Sexual medicine is concerned with diagnosing, assessing and treating all disorders related to sexuality.

Sports medicine deals with the treatment and preventive care of athletes, amateur and professional. The team includes specialty physicians and surgeons, athletic trainers, physical therapists, coaches, other personnel, and, of course, the athlete.
Therapeutics is the field, more commonly referenced in earlier periods of history, of the various remedies that can be used to treat disease and promote health.
Veterinary medicine; veterinarians apply similar techniques as physicians to the care of animals.

All the above can be studied with us! Who is in?

Hippocratic Oath

The Hippocratic Oath is an oath historically taken by physicians and other healthcare professionals swearing to practice medicine ethically. It is widely believed to have been written by Hippocrates, often regarded as the father of western medicine, or by one of his students. The oath is written in Ionic Greek (late 5th century BC), and is usually included in the Hippocratic Corpus. Of historic and traditional value, the oath is considered a rite of passage for practitioners of medicine in many countries, although nowadays the modernized version of the text varies among them.

The Hippocratic Oath (orkos) is one of the most widely known of Greek medical texts. It requires a new physician to swear upon a number of healing gods that he will uphold a number of professional ethical standards.
A widely used modern version of the traditional oath was penned in 1964 by Dr. Louis Lasagna, former Principal of the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences and Academic Dean of the School of Medicine at Tufts University:

I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.

I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

I will not be ashamed to say “I know not”, nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient’s recovery.

I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given to me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.

I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

I will remember that I remain a member of society with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine was founded in 2009 by Donald Singer, a clinical professor, and poet and translator Michael Hulse.

The founders ‘wished to draw together national and international perspectives on three major historical and contemporary themes uniting the disciplines of poetry and medicine: medicine as inspiration for the writings of poets; effects of poetic creativity on the experience of illness by patients, their families, friends, and carers; and poetry as therapy.’ There are two awards: one for UK health students and National Health Service-related professionals, including educators, researchers, and biomedical scientists, and a second one, the International Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine, for an international open category for unpublished poems in English by any living poet.

The Hippocrates poetry and medicine initiative was short-listed in the 2011 Times Higher Education awards for Excellence and Innovation. This award aims to recognise the collaborative and interdisciplinary work that is taking place in universities to promote the arts. Entries were open to teams from all higher education institutions in the UK.
