Candidates’ knowledge will be tested through continuous assessment by the placement supervisor and by examinations on the subjects taught. In addition, candidates must produce a piece of scientific work to present in a public class and to a national or international emergency medicine convention and/or published in a recognized scientific journal. A written and oral evaluation by an inter-university francophone jury takes place at the end of the 5th year.
When the above requirements have been fulfilled, the programme committee will award the academic qualification in emergency medicine.
This is not a substitute for recognition by the ministerial committee. It is evidence of academic and scientific training in the context of specialized training leading to the award of professional status.
Training as a specialist doctor in intensive medicine may count for three years towards the total of six years’ training required to become a specialist doctor in emergency medicine.
