In line with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) legislation, please be aware that as of 1 March 2024, the Emergency Medicine Diploma and Emergency Medicine Advanced Diploma will be known as the Intermediate Emergency Medicine Training Program, and Advanced Emergency Medicine Training Program, respectively. ACEM is currently in the process of transitioning all documents to reflect this change. Meanwhile, any reference to "Diploma" and "Advanced Diploma" within this webpage and documents linked on this page should be replaced with the new title. Find out more here.

Who is This Program Designed For?

The Associateship in Intermediate Emergency Medicine (IEMTP) is a training program that builds upon the knowledge and skills gained during the Emergency Medicine Certificate (EMC). This training program is suited to and intended for doctors working:

  • in an emergency department with access to offsite support, but without rapid access onsite critical care support; or
  • as part of the team in an emergency department where they are a senior decision maker (SDM).

At the completion of training IEMTP doctors will have the knowledge and skills to independently manage and treat a range of higher complexity emergency presentations. Addition to those of the EMC, they will also have the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to:

  • stabilise critically ill and injured patients;
  • provide safe sedation for emergency procedures. 

IEMTP doctors will also have the knowledge, skills, and attributes to communicate and collaborate effectively with patients and families from different cultures, members of their local healthcare team, and clinicians from other services.
