Essential Emergency Healthcare Course (EEHC)

UK-Med are currently developing an Essential Emergency Healthcare Course (EEHC) which will become a mandatory stage of the training pathway. It will be run in collaboration with, and be accredited by, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

The EEHC is being designed to cover aspects of hospital care and clinical training requirements and will support an EMT’s role in ensuring essential emergency healthcare remains in place following a sudden-onset disaster. The online course will be covering topics including (but not limited to); deployment briefing; hospital set-up; mass casualty management; paediatric treatment; obstetrics; ethical decision-making; safeguarding; epidemiology; information gathering and discharge and referral procedures.
