It is the only Core training programme for trainees wishing to enter Higher Specialty Training in Emergency Medicine (EM) and is an alternative Core training programme for trainees wishing to enter Higher Specialty Training in Anaesthesia (Ana) and any of the Specialties listed on the JRCPTB website.
The first two years are spent rotating through Emergency Medicine (EM), Internal Medicine (IM), Anaesthetics (ANA) and Intensive Care Medicine (ICM).
The order of the placements will depend on your parent speciality. The third year and beyond is spent in training of your speciality.
EM training is run through.
IM and ANA trainees will need to reapply for higher training after they have completed years 3 and 4.
