Course content

Our new part-time masters degree supports doctors pursuing a career as an emergency medicine specialist.

It provides you with an academic qualification recognising the emergency medicine and general training completed during your early training years.

You’ll complete four core units, Evidence-based Practice, Education and Training in Practice, Leadership in Clinical Care Settings, and Research Methods. These units provide you with invaluable transferrable skills, wherever your future career may lead.

You’ll also complete two specialist units, Trauma Emergencies and Paediatric Emergencies, and a project related to the field of emergency medicine.

Some of the topics you’ll consider include cardiac arrest and severe meningococcal disease in children, blunt and penetrating major injury, and musculoskeletal injury to the limbs.

We teach you via blended learning, through methods such as online sessions, face-to-face tutorials, and group work to help you network and share best practice with fellow students.
