Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine has been an accredited sub-specialty training option since 2013, and can be accessed from training in EM, ICM, Anaesthesia or Acute Medicine. There is a national recruitment process annually for posts starting the following year.
PHEM posts in Wales provide an opportunity for senior training grade doctors (ST 5-7) in Emergency Medicine, Anaesthesia, Intensive Care Medicine or Acute Internal Medicine to undertake sub-specialty training in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine within appropriately supported and governed clinical services. It is aimed at those individuals whose long-term career aspirations involve a significant component of Pre-Hospital Emergency Care work. Successful completion of the training programme will allow for sub-specialty accreditation in Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine.
Information on PHEM training is available from the Intercollegiate Board for Training in Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine (IBTPHEM).
