Update August 2019

There has been encouraging progress throughout Scotland to improve accessibility to opportunities in pre-hospital emergency medicine during the year.

In particular, the pilot of a national initiative to involve students in the Diploma and Fellowship of Immediate Medical Care has been successful. Participation included patient roles, an evening CPD session delivered by a member of the Faculty and an opportunity to experience the environment of professional examinations. Preliminary feedback is promising, with hope to continue expanding this strategy to achieve sustainability for future diets.

Glasgow University has an established PHEM society (Glasgow uPHEM) running annual conferences, scenario sessions and EMRS clinical governance days. Edinburgh University Emergency Medicine Society held their first PHEM Conference this year including talks from David Bywater, Scottish Ambulance Service Consultant Paramedic and Professor Richard Lyons MBE.

The first Helicopter Medical Careers event was hosted in Glasgow, proving to be an incredibly informative event for students and healthcare professionals interested in PHEM, with plans for a further event in 2020. 

There continues to be other societies throughout the region covering specific areas of PHEM such as wilderness medicine and remote and rural medicine.
