Problems and objectives: Europe encompasses not only fifty or more different languages and cultures, but also a similar number of different systems of healthcare and medical practice. Each country has different medical traditions, different systems of professional registration and differing lists of medical specialties.

Methodology: Literature, Report of The European Observatory on Health Systems, as well as World Health Organization health statistics analysis

Results and conclusions: In this chapter, the Belgian healthcare system will be discussed, as well as the area of emergency medicine, which is currently recognized as an independent specialty. The different stakeholders in emergency medicine will also be discussed in this chapter, and their qualifications and responsibilities will be presented.
