Welcome to the Wessex School of Emergency Medicine

The School of Emergency Medicine is committed to delivering the highest quality of training in the breadth of Emergency Care. We work with all clinical staff to improve the experience of working in Wessex. Doctors are represented on the School Board from all stages of training. The School is multi-professional and (as clinically) we work together with nursing and pre-hospital colleagues to develop our training programmes.

Emergency Medicine Higher specialty training in Wessex rotates between Basingstoke in the north, Portsmouth in the East, Poole and Salisbury in the West and Southampton in the centre of the region.  The wide catchment area allows trainees in the region to experience a wide range of pathologies, patient demographics and ever changing population densities.

We aim to have the best results for the ACCS exams and FCEM.

Wessex is a fantastic place to live and work. Please feel free to phone or visit.

Higher EM Training days are held twice a month - come and see what we do and talk to those training here!
