Based at the University Hospitals of Leicester, we serve the educational needs of healthcare practitioners in Acute & Emergency Medicine across the East Midlands, UK
East Midlands Emergency Medicine Educational Media (aka #EM3) is a group leading multi-professional education at the Leicester Royal Infirmary Emergency Department.
It was created in response to poor GMC and Health Education East Midlands (HEEM) reports in 2012 and initially consisted of a funded Post Graduate Education Lead, Administrator, Clinical Teachers and Education OOPEs who implemented educational programmes including:
Mapped out bespoke teaching packages to curricula
A 2-day induction programme
Facilitated case based discussion clinics and protected shop floor teaching
These face-to-face initiatives have been supported by the #EM3 website. This learner led approach to education encouraged individual goal setting and sharing of knowledge.
#EM3 is open access so all trainees, in and outside of the East Midlands, can benefit. It is one of the few Free Open Access Medical Education (#FOAMed) learning platforms in the UK that links curricula to teaching.
