Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. As anyone here got any experience of the training route from Med School to PHEM Consultant, ideally with a ACCS or Anaesthetic background? Free for a chat/questions?
  2. From my work with the London Air Ambulance, all came in a variety of ways. Choose your core training, then apply for PHEM fellowships and such like, then hope one of the few Consultant jobs becomes vacated.
  3. Most of the consultant grade pre-hospital docs I am aware of come from either Emergency Medicine or Anaesthetic backgrounds via DipIMC and FIMC as well as primary specialist registration on the basis of FRCA or FCEM.

    In the current situation ACCS then EM or gasses or run through anaesthetics specialist training would be the route , although the outside choice would GP and DipIMC and then FIMC post GP registration - but a lack of gas passing skills, knowledge and experience compared to the ACCS boys and girls .
