Emergency Medicine is a field of practice based on the knowledge and skills required for the prevention, diagnosis and management of acute and urgent aspects of illness and injury affecting patients of all age groups with a full spectrum of undifferentiated physical and behavioural disorders. It further encompasses an understanding of the development of pre-hospital and in-hospital emergency medical systems and the skills necessary for this development.
As part of current Medical Council obligations, all doctors not on recognised Training Schemes must be part of a recognised Professional Competence Scheme. Click for details of the PCS for Emergency Medicine.
