How the FACEM Training Program works

The FACEM Training Program is a minimum five year training program. It can be undertaken on a full-time or part-time basis. The training program includes structured training and education, work-place based assessments, research requirements and examinations.

Trainees get involved in the College

There are many reasons why trainees get involved in the College. It provides leadership opportunities, professional development, an avenue to suggest improvements and make a difference along with an opportunity to learn how the College works, whilst meeting other trainees and members.

Paediatric Emergency Medicine Training

Paediatric emergency medicine (PEM) is the major branch of medicine concerned with the short-term and emergency treatment of children (neonates to adolescents). To be eligible to enrol in PEM Training with ACEM, you must be enrolled as a trainee in the FACEM Training Program.
