Abstract

There is no specific structured training programme for doctors working in prehospital care in the United Kingdom. In the West Midlands (UK) a structured supervised programme has been devised, which recruits medical undergraduates and provides an educational programme and practical experience leading to the successful completion of the Diploma in Immediate Medical Care and the status of an independent prehospital care practitioner. The training scheme has successfully produced a significant number of coctors who are now practising in the West Midlands and United Kingdom.
