Emergency Medicine (AETC)


Ope-rationalization of Medicine AETC

Many will feel at home as they go through AETC pathway. It is the only formal emergency department in the country setting the standard of excellence in the field of emergency care in Malawi.

The department works hand in hand with other departments. When critically ill  patients are stabilised, and initial diagnosis made,  the exit is either;
  • discharge
  • short stay
  • or admission to any QECH ward depending on the diagnosis and risk stratification.
For medical patients, they get seen by the medical team which is onsite or can be called anytime, so do surgical and obstetric patients.

Other specialties from time to time get to be called depending on:

  • the needs and patient presentation
  • ophthalmology
  • ENT
  • Maxillofacial
  • neurosurgery 
  • Psychiatric
  • social worker
