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.
We’re looking for some volunteers (Looking at the SpRs! 🙂 to write a brief paragraph outlining what they’ve done in their training so far – e.g. what jobs they’ve worked, did they work abroad, take time out to do research etc. Nothing major, just something short so that new EM docs can see the wide range of options available to them in Emergency Medicine!
