Non Specialist Diplomas in EM and Non Specialist Training Schemes in EM

Medical practitioners wishing to become specialist Emergency Physicians should contact the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine directly.

Just visit www.acem.org.au and or discuss training options with accredited Emergency Departments (EDs) within Australia and New Zealand.

Non specialist training programs are being establishing in assorted jurisdictions due to manpower shortages, the need to ensure a skill acquisition and maintenance amongst " Career Medical Officers" (CMOs) in Australia and Medical Officers of special scale (MOSS) in New Zealand.

Across the Tasman, New Zealand offers courses in Community Emergency Medicine (see below link)
The University of Auckland

AND

A Fellowship is available following the completion of that course and examination to the Accident and Medical Practitioner Association AMPA (see below link)
www.ampa.co.nz

In Australia, non specialist training in EM is advancing in a more haphazard way. The newly created college of rural medicine (ACCRM) have created streams in EM that suit the needs of rural doctors working at district hospital level "Emergency Rooms" around the country. Please see below for further information!

Additionally, a diploma course in Emergency Medicine is offered by the University of Melbourne.

In New South Wales, curriculum objectives have been developed by NSW Health to ensure that non specialist CMOs in that state have the necessary skills to work in Emergency Departments.


**NEW Non Specialist Training and Diploma Schemes**
Multiple learned Colleges, Universities and Professional Associations now offer certificate or diploma qualifications for non specialists working in Emergency Medicine.

Such qualifications may in the future become minimum standard entry points for senior (non specialist EM physician) appointments in Australian Hospitals.
