The Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is pleased to be facilitating an exciting medical elective opportunity in the rapidly evolving specialty of Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine.

Being run for the second year, this once in a lifetime opportunity will provide an insight into many aspects of Pre-Hospital Care, including shifts with the West Midlands Ambulance Service, time spent with the Fire Service and Police Firearms units, and time spent in the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care in Edinburgh.

There will also be experience of a Major Trauma Centre and the teams that work within it at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. This year’s lucky elective student is Paul Traynor, a fourth year Medical Student at Queen’s University Belfast.

Paul is ‘delighted’ at being awarded the elective opportunity, and is hoping ‘it will be a fantastic experience’. The Faculty is hoping to offer further elective opportunities in the future; interested students should check for further information.
