The Intercollegiate Board for Training in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine is responsible for training and assessment in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) in the UK on behalf of its parent Colleges.
PHEM is a new sub-specialty area of medical practice focusing on the specialist provision of on-scene and in-transit critical care. Training in PHEM is only through approved training programmes and once successfully completed will confer sub-specialty accreditation against your GMC CCT.
As a new area of medical training, this website aims to provide information on the PHEM sub-specialty in the UK.
Training during the Covid-19 period
The IBTPHEM recognises that during this period there is a significant level of uncertainty regarding training and training providers, as well as much anxiety related to loved ones and personal health. At the same time, there remains demand for PHEM clinical services and expertise. PHEM trainees continue in their training programmes and we have contacted all current PHEM trainees aiming to update them on issues relating to their training. We recognise that the situation is changing rapidly and therefore this guidance will be updated as we know more from our partners and regulators. Currently we are still expecting to receive the new PHEM trainees in August 2020.
Details of all approved training programmes and posts will be posted here as they become available, and subject to formal approval by the GMC and IBTPHEM.read more
