It is important to note that the EMST course is not a mandatory
eligibility requirement for selection to the SET program, but is
required to be undertaken during SET. Priority for courses is given
to surgical trainees.
Please note to attend EMST you must be a medical graduate.
Places will only be available to doctors post-graduate year 2+.
The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course, accredited by
the American College of Surgeons, is considered equivalent to
EMST. Further information can be found on the ATLS
