UnderGrads

Antrim ED is linked with Queen’s University Belfast School of Medicine – 3rd year students have the opportunity of taking a SSC – Student Selected Component in the ED. The SSC offered is ‘Practical procedures in the ED’ and allows them to learn and develop essential practical skills such as venepuncture, cannulation, catheterisation and suturing.

SSC requirements include submitting 2 cases and a project – see below for examples

We also run the Peri-operative and Emergency Medicine module (POEMs) throughout the year. Topics covered include airway management, local anaesthetics, approach to the critically ill patient, IV fluids/blood products and practical prescribing.

Medical students from around the UK are also welcome for electives during the year
