Emergency Medicine

Emergency Medicine is a rapidly evolving specialty which attracts individuals who thrive on challenge and variety.

As a career, it will never be dull and offers opportunities to develop sub specialty interests in areas such as paediatric Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, and Pre-Hospital care.

Trainees enter the specialty via the Acute Care Common Stem programme, or having equivalent experience. In Wales, emergency physicians are based in busy urban hospitals or units close to coastal and mountain areas where they experience a different variety of challenging presentations.

Many doctors find the work-life balance much more flexible than expected and the breadth of clinical challenge is exceptional.
