NOTICE – This blog represents our opinions and should not be considered representative of views of emergency medicine in Ireland. The Irish Association for Emergency Medicine can be found here. The body representing trainees in Ireland is the The Irish Emergency Medicine Trainees Association and their site can be found here.

This site exists to hopefully foster education, reflection, enthusiasm, conversation and hopefully a sense of humour in emergency medicine in Ireland.

I’ve done most of my training so far (I’ve still a fair bit left to do…) in Northern Ireland, New Zealand and Dublin and spent 2 yrs on a clinical hiatus teaching anatomy (though mainly it was me learning…) in Dublin. It gave me enough time to keep this site updated. I’ve been back in the ED since July 2012. I am a flexible trainee in emergency medicine and as a result of the somewhat extending training I’m aiming to be the most overtrained emergency physician in the country.

If you’re interested I also occasionally blog on life, books, theology and canoeing over at NellyAndI and have some music at End Any Ill

I also do a lot of work with the RCEM FOAMed network where I also sit on the editorial board

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Hi Andy

    I’m an EM trainee currently working in BCH after a year in RVH ED. Have been following Emergency Medicine Ireland for yonks now -- great stuff so thought I’d better tell you. I was chatting to an old colleague of yours recently (John Strange) who was interested in your exploits. I’m currently studying for MCEM and MRCP (just to keep options open) but will be presenting/postering at ICEM 2012 re highly concentrated hypertonic saline in TBI -- look forward to meeting you.

    Keep it going

    P.S. If you don’t mind me asking when your back to clinical duties this summer are you back North or staying Dublin region -- there’s quite a bit of moving and dealing going on here at the moment with a new trauma fellow job just advertised plus ?? “proper” pre-hospital scheme being developed.
