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.
