The EMFP curriculum was developed in 2019 and following the recent changes in the RCEM UK curriculum, we are now looking to review and update the EMFP curriculum so that it contains the latest in educational theory with a focus on Specialty Learning Outcomes (SLOs) to ensure that the curricula reflect the key areas whilst remaining adaptable to the diverse service and population needs in-country
RCEM have recently been awarded funds from Health Education England (HEE)/ NHS England to develop an Emergency Medicine Core Programme in India. This will see the development of a 2-year programme that would follow RCEM International’s flagship programme, the EMFP.
RCEM previously received some seed funding from HEE to set up the EMFP pilot to test a new curriculum for junior trainees in non-UK countries. The aim of this programme was to promote the development of EM and to provide high quality training and raise the standard of care for patients.
The EMFP has seen the following achievements over the 3 years:
The EMCP will look to combine the current EMFP with an additional 2-year core level training programme, this would be based on the current ACCS programme. It would bring a structure in place with an RCEM badge, with strong insight into entrustment levels, workplace-based assessment, self-reflection, annual appraisals, leadership in EM and use of the RCEM eLearning suite including ePortfolio and a programme resource web page. A Pilot is planned for the 4 sites in India who are part of the Apollo group who have spent 3 years delivering EMFP to a high standard.
The EMFP working group is looking for expertise from our members to bring the current EMFP curriculum in line with the format of the recently updated UK RCEM curriculum and to develop a brand-new curriculum for the EMCP. The key roles selected individual would be responsible for are set out below:
