Welcome to Acute Medicine in the East of England deanery, is a vibrant, rewarding, and rapidly evolving medical speciality, concerned with the assessment, diagnosis and management of adults presenting to secondary care with acute medical illness. It involves the management of busy acute medical units (AMUs) and Ambulatory Care Units (Same Day Emergency Care) to ensure they deliver high-quality, efficient and patient centred care.
We are a large region geographically which means in your training you can experience the differences in working in a metropolitan Cambridge, to working in a rural DGH ensuring you experience a range of ways of working. We as a specialty prioritise trainee preferences in hospital rotations and are proactive in trying to prevent unnecessarily long commutes.
This website provides an overview of the Acute Medicine Specialist Training scheme and provides information required for trainees.
The five-year programme is designed to provide trainees with a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in Acute Internal Medicine (AIM) and General Internal Medicine (GIM).
