AbstractEmergency Medicine (EM) is a challenging specialty to work within and forms part of a number of training programs. The Emergency Medicine experience at non-consultant hospital doctor (NCHD) level in Ireland has not been reported.
We retrospectively audited one NCHDs 6-month experience in Emergency Medicine at Cork University Hospital to document the potential experience gained from this rotation.
We found a broad experience and exposure to a variety of medical conditions, especially orthopaedic presentations (39% of patients seen).
Emergency Medicine provides a potential broad experience for a senior house officer and may be of benefit to various training schemes.
