Peninsula Emergency Medicine Registrar Training Day Rota 2014-2017
Steve Fordham v1. Dec 2014

This is the table of curriculum mapped subjects to be taught on the regional training days.
This assumes ACCS CT1-2 competencies are already achieved.

The programme works on the basis below:

It is a 3 year rolling rota. Yearly there is 1 mock exam, 1 critical appraisal day, 1 summer holiday.
Over the three years there are 2 Ultrasound days (1 Exeter and 1 Taunton)
This gives a remaining 25 days.

The 2010 curriculum (CT3-HST) is made up of:

25 Core competencies (CC)
9 Additional Adult Acute presentations (C3AP)
5 HST Major presentations (HMP)
34 HST Acute presentations (HAP)
6 Paediatric major presentations (PMP)
21 Paediatric acute presentations (PAP)

Total = 100 core topics


Each day has 1 Core Competency (CC) topic and 3 of the additional Major and Acute presentations.
Paediatric topics are integrated within the days so topics taught are a mix of adult and paediatric focus on the same broad subjects.
The column FCEM is the suggested format of FCEM real time practice for the day. (O = Osce, C = Crit appraisal, S = Clinical SAQ,
M = Management)
