We're back for 2019! This national two-day conference is aimed at medical and paramedic students, junior doctors, paramedics, and allied healthcare professionals. We hope to develop knowledge and skills, inform trainees of the PHEM training pathway and the diverse role of PHEM in a variety of diverse environments, inspire interest and promote debate within this pioneering medical field.
