I am really interested to pursue sports medicine in UK. Currently i am a MRCEM candidate. So my querry is can i pursue sports medicine after completion of MRCEM ???
Have you done any training in the UK?
Sports medicine is a ST3 post, not a ST1 one, that means you must have some previous IMT, emergency medicine or GP training to be eligible to apply. If you choose the emergency medicine pathway, you must have:
- Been awarded MRCEM or completed FRCEM Intermediate certificate
- Evidence of achievement of ST/CT1, ST/CT2 and ST/CT3 Emergency Medicine competences at
core trainee level
Do let me know if you have more questions
Thanks for the reply Gabriela.
As i have been pursuing MRCEM already, i will prefer emergency medicine pathway. So i have to complete ST1 & ST2. Then when i am at ST3 level, i can continue or start my training at sports medicine. Right?
After those two years you can apply for sports medicine
Best of luck!
