EDPSCS is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health (DoH). Until 2018, the Program was delivered through eight private hospitals under funding agreements with DoH.
From 2018, ACEM will administer the funding to private hospitals to support the employment of clinical supervisor and staff specialist training coordination positions.
The funded clinical supervisor positions are occupied by senior Fellows of ACEM. Their responsibilities, include developing a training program in emergency medicine (EM) which satisfies ACEM accreditation requirements for Fellowship training, and expanding the roles of EM trainees within the hospital’s education network, and through external hospital education.
Eligible hospitals are required to have achieved outcomes including accreditation with ACEM for up to 12 months, supported Senior Medical Officers (SMOs) to complete the ACEM Certificate (EMC) and Diploma (EMD) in EM and integrated trainee rotations into the existing public hospital training programs.
