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.
