This article offers an exercise in anticipating what emergency medicine might provide us with in coming decades. It is a disquisition on a generic level and is structured around 10 basic concepts that will probably mark the future in the practice of this speciality. These concepts are: 1. The triumph of diversity. 2. The limitation of consumerism in health. 3. The surrender to the tyranny of what is urgent. 4. The decrease in the asymmetry of knowledge. 5. The path towards integration of services and professionals. 6. The approach to an adequate platform. 7. The attainment of regulated training. 8. The consolidation of an efficient and analytical accident and emergency medical practice. 9. The everyday character of information transfer as a sign of the new millennium. 10. The profession of emergency as a cause for pride.
