Academy of Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine

EAAA’s Academy of Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) provides an academic platform from which we can share our expert and specialist knowledge with others.

We strive to improve understanding and skillset in the field of PHEM on both a national and international level. Building on the existing work of our Research, Audit, Innovation and Development Group, the EAAA Academy of Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine further supports the delivery of the charity strategy. This includes working collaboratively and in partnership - while continuing to push the boundaries and providing excellence in out-of-hospital critical care.

Driven by innovation in the field of PHEM, the EAAA Academy of Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine identifies needs and upskilling opportunities. This post-graduate academic learning aims to bring pre-hospital clinicians up to a higher level of skills and knowledge.

To date, we have trained many of our own clinicians and critical care doctors and paramedics from other HEMS organisations and the NHS, as well as international clinicians in a range of innovative procedures and pre-hospital interventions. The ultimate goal is to develop the future of pre-hospital emergency medicine to improve outcomes for patients.
