About the Emergency Medicine programme

The programmeĀ is an online learning resource designed to meet the needs of trainee doctors in Emergency Medicine. It will also be a vital component of CPD activity for consultants and FASSGEM doctors for purposes of revalidation.

It has been developed by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare.

The ST1-6 self assessment modules will reflect the College’s curriculum at a basic science level as well as an understanding of knowledge and its application in clinical scenario sessions.
