Associate Specialist Grade Position Statement

The Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) believes that there is a role for the grade of associate specialist. It is important for the maintenance of senior cover within emergency departments and the College believes that it will assist in the retention of senior doctors within the specialty. As such, RCEM strongly supports the principle of its reinstatement in a similar form as before or as an alternatively named grade of senior specialist.
