About uPHEM Glasgow

Who We Are

The Undergraduate Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (uPHEM) programme was established in September 2016 and aims to introduce undergraduates to the world of pre-hospital emergency medicine. Students can benefit from funded places at national conferences, simulation teaching, clinical governance experience and numerous educational days featuring workshops and lectures from experts in the field. While the majority of tomorrows' doctors won't regularly work in the field, the pre-hospital environment has much to teach us about acute/critical care, non-technical skills and a safety/high performance culture. These lessons will be crucial for anyone working in a rural GP, A&E, critical care or any acute environment.
