Emergency Medicine International Training (EMIT) Programme

Health Education England, supported by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine and the Society of Emergency Medicine India, is piloting the recruitment of International Training Fellows in Emergency Medicine to complement our existing trainees, consultants and specialty doctors. Each post will be fully integrated within the specialty team in one of a number of Trusts within the East of England and will support high quality provision of patient care in Emergency Medicine. These posts will provide excellent training and service opportunities for doctors with varying career aspirations. The scheme is fully endorsed by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) and Society of Emergency Medicine India (SEMI) to give international doctors established UK based training with a view to bringing their skills back to their home country. 

We will recruit up to 50 exceptional candidates for these posts. They will be based in hospitals within the East of England. In order to maximise the effectiveness of the support programmes, start dates will be fixed, and all offers of employment will be made by 31 March 2019. Candidates may be grouped into smaller cohorts, depending on their readiness to travel to the UK.
