Emergency Medicine Training in Ireland

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. 

The National Emergency Medicine Training Programme (NEMTP) was introduced in July 2014 as a 7 year seamless Training Programme.

The Progamme will involve 3 years of Core Training (CSTEM). Throughout CSTEM, trainees will work towards completion of their Membership Exam of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (MRCEM) in addition to satisfactory progression within Core Training to obtain their Certificate of Completion of Core Training (CCCT). This will enable trainees to progress to Advanced Training in Emergency Medicine (ASTEM Yrs 4-7) following a formal Assessment of Suitability for Advanced Training (ASAT).
