ST3 Year

Your ST3 year will be based in your base specialty; for Anaesthesia or Acute Medicine trainees please see the relevant specialty pages.

For EM you will spend this transitional year in either Portsmouth or Southampton. Both have large Paediatric workloads with excellent support.

The aim is to gain both Paediatric and Musculoskeletal experience as well as preparing for life as a registrar at ST4. This year will give you much exposure to paediatric cases in Resus/ ED and out patient settings as well as on the ward.

For information regarding PEM training days please see timetable.

Whilst we are not specific about numbers of cases seen (quality of training probably more important than quantity) we expect full time trainees to see over 650 cases per annum as well as working through the Workplace Based Assessments. It is also an opportunity to work through; 1. Intermediate FRCEM (Mandated for progression into ST4), 2. Life Support courses (all must be in date for progression into ST4), 3. Ultrasound competencies, please contact Dr Michael Kiuber 4. Many of our ST3's complete the critical appraisal exam in this year.

Summary checklist: For your ST1/2/3 ARCP you will need:

  • A structured training report for each post (print and complete the paper version, sign and upload)
  • An anonymised logbook for each post
  • A signed form R and reflection on any work outside training/ complaints
  • Reflections throughout the year, particularly SUI / complaints
  • Exact case numbers not specified but a good breadth of pathology expected – for ST3 aim for over 600 paeds cases
  • Multi source feedback from over 12 respondents (3 or more consultants needed)
  • From ST3 a faculty governance statement
  • Map the curriculum as you go
  • Work through your ARCP checklist and get it signed
