About the Emergency Medicine programme

Emergency MedicineThe programme 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 elearning for healthcare.
