We are a team of emergency medicine and critical care specialists working to improve the education of clinicians and the care of patients.
The four pillars of learning are evidence-based medicine, clinical excellence, personal development, and the philosophical overview of emergency care. We have a strong academic faculty and reputation for high quality education presented through multimedia platforms and articles.
St Emlyn’s is a name given to a fictionalised emergency care system. This online clinical space is designed to allow clinical care to be discussed without compromising the safety or confidentiality of patients or clinicians. You can read more about the development of the blog in the Postgraduate Medical Journal article.
