ABOUT KCL EMS
The King's College London Emergency Medicine Society (KCL EMS) aims to equip students with the skills, confidence and experience to be able to engage in critical care situations through the exploration of all aspects of emergency (EM) and prehospital medicine (PHEM).
KCL EMS is home to the KCL Prehospital Care Programme (PCP), where medical/nursing students can go on observation shifts with the London Ambulance Service and at King's College Hospital Emergency Department.
The EMS organises events including PHEM training sessions, EM mock OSCEs, electives evenings and a yearly Extreme Medicine conference in association with KCL Wilderness Medicine Society (WMS).
KCL EMS also holds monthly academic forums covering various topics in EM and PHEM ranging from cardiac arrest and airway management to submersion injury and psychiatric emergencies. These fora include talks from world-leading consultants in current areas of research, case studies and technological advances. Finally, each academic forum ends with a case presentation from a PCP student followed by a discussion and social.
