Currently running surveys:

1. RCEM Survey of Emergency Physicians on Global Emergency Medicine related activity

Deadline: January 2019

RCEM has recently established a Global Emergency Medicine Committee to further the development of training, research, networks and opportunities in this emerging field.

As such, this survey was designed to better describe the current status of global emergency medicine related activities by emergency physicians with links to RCEM.

The Committee are also working towards creating a network of members and fellows of the College both in the UK and around the world who are involved in global emergency medicine

Please note, that while the survey findings may be published, your personal identifiable data will not be made available to the public domain and all data will be handled according to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

2. National study of resilience and burnout in UK doctors

Deadline: 23 November 2018

We would appreciate if you would complete an online questionnaire for us that is made up of validated psychological tests. We expect that it will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

The survey aims to explore how doctors rate their professional quality of life and job satisfaction. It also aims to quantify resilience and assess what coping mechanisms doctors are using. 

You will not be asked to enter any identifiable information and in that regard the survey is anonymous.
