The schematics for the FRCEM pathway has been unveiled. It is a 5 year pathway in total, designed similarly to the UK DRE-EM pathway.
There are 2 phases:
- Minimum 12 months in ED, 4 months in Medicine, 4 months in Paeds, 2 months in Anaesth and 2 months in ICU. (Math says that totals up to 24 months)
- Pass FRCEM Primary, Intermediate Cert, and MRCEM OSCE.
- 36 months in EM, including an option to train in the UK for 12 months.
- Pass FRCEM Finals
You may arrange for your rotations via your head of department and hospital director. Upon successful completion of the required rotations, exams and logbook, hooray, you can be recognised as an emergency physician!
