Entry to the Membership Examination of the College of Emergency Medicine (MCEM) is based on regulations published on the College’s website. These regulations are updated regularly and candidates are advised to look at the regulations for the diet of the current and future examinations before applying.
A trainee who is otherwise eligible may take MCEM Parts B and C, 36 months after qualification as a doctor (including internship/FY1 year). In the UK this is during the second year of Emergency Medicine training in ACCS although many candidates find it helpful to delay the examination until entry into the third year of training in the UK (CT3).
For trainees enrolled on the Emergency Medicine training programme at Apollo Hospitals in India, this will usually be after the end of their second year of Emergency Medicine training even though they might be enrolled in a three-year training programme.
It is recognised that the examination itself is but one part of the development and evidence of competence needed for autonomous practice after completion of core Emergency Medicine training. Additional experience will be needed over and above the 36 months minimum for eligibility to the exam to practice autonomously.
Overseas trainees need not be enrolled in a particular hospital’s training programme as long as the post includes formal training opportunities (lectures/tutorials) and the candidate can demonstrate that they have had regular appraisal and educational development meetings. These will usually be records of appraisal meetings and of educational sessions attended/course certfiicates.
Candidates who wish overseas experience to be counted, MUST ensure every post has been signed off by the educational supervisor for that post. Failure to complete the form correctly will mean you will not be accepted for the exam.
Please note you MUST have a valid visa before applying for the examination. Regulations for international examinations are available here.
The College recommends following the UK Resuscitation Council guidelines and ATLS guidelines. However, candidates who work in hospitals that use different guidelines may state the name/source of the alternative guideline (for example ERC or AHA) they are following if it differs from the UK guidelines. The College recommends following the most recent UKRC guideline – but when these change, it is acceptable to state the old guideline for up to 6 months after the change.
Preparing for the examination
Candidates should note that the exam requires considerable preparation. The College recommends that candidates have the best chance of success in the exam if they are closely supervised in the period of preparation. Specifically the College recommends that the candidate receives regular focused training in clinical skills and regular feedback on their performance. This supervision and support would appear to be crucial in success, as evidenced by the success rate of the trainees in taking the examination compared to doctors who do not have the standard of supervision received in training posts.
