The IEMTA committee are delighted to present the result of our IEMTA Trainee Survey carried out in November 2020. It is a particularly challenging time to work in Emergency Medicine and now, more than ever, it is vital that we ensure that trainees’ needs are being met on both an educational and personal level.
The responses have provided an invaluable insight into the experience of EM Trainees in Ireland, both on a formal training scheme (Core Specialist Training in Emergency Medicine (CSTEM) & Advanced Specialist Training in Emergency Medicine (ASTEM) and Non-Scheme Trainees. Uniquely this year, we have also examined aspects of trainees’ wellness and well-being in a bid to identify areas in need of improvement.
In an effort to gain a greater understanding of the challenges facing NCHDs working in Emergency Medicine, IEMTA are launching the second iteration of our Member Survey.
This year we’ve expanded the survey to include CSTEM, ASTEM and Non-Scheme Trainees working in Emergency Medicine in Ireland. On average, it will will take approximately 10-12 minutes to complete.
Please complete this survey as honestly as possible. Your responses will help direct how IEMTA can best represent your views to the ICEMT, IAEM, Dept of Health and beyond as well as help shape EM Training in Ireland going forward.
Join us on Friday (9th October) at 5pm for the IEMTA AGM. This meeting is open to all NCHDs working in Emergency Medicine in Ireland (both trainees and non-trainees alike!) IEMTA is OUR Association, so let’s hear what you want it to do!
Coming this Spring, we have the highly anticipated Spring Scientific Meeting. In times past, this event took place on a Friday evening. Given the growing interest in EM and growth of our members, we’d like to try something different this year – the meeting will take place over a full day, on Saturday May 19th, 2018 with an Ultrasound Level 1 Sign-off component preceding the Scientific Meeting.
Date: Saturday May 19th, 13:00-18:00pm
Pre-conference Ultrasound Sign-Off: Saturday May 19th, 09:30-12:00pm
Scientific Programme and Social Programme will follow in coming weeks!
We are formally accepting abstracts for oral and poster presentations. Closing date is April 20th, 2018.
Abstract submission forms and meeting poster are attached below. Abstracts can be emailed to email@example.com.
