Workforce, training and education
East of England


At the East of England of School Emergency Medicine we offer a three year core training programme and a three year higher training programme and aim to provide the highest quality of training.

Core Training

Core training in Emergency Medicine consists of two years in the Acute Common Stem (ACCS), involving posts in Emergency Medicine, Acute Medicine (CT1), ITU and Anaesthetics (CT2). This is followed by a third year (CT3) with an emphasis on paediatrics and musculoskeletal medicine. ACCS rotations are usually based in one hospital. Expressions of preference are requested for the third year which may be able to be accommodated according to personal circumstances and availability.

For resources in Acute Care Common Stem (ACCS), please visit ACCS.

Higher Specialty Training

Higher Specialty training consists of Years 4 to 6 which are spent receiving more advanced clinical, academic and managerial training in the emergency department.  Trainees rotate in geographically compact rotations that minimise travelling and include rotations which involve trauma units and a major trauma centre.  We also offer opportunities to sub-specialise in Paediatric Emergency Medicine and Intensive Care and we have pioneered a programme for Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine.
