Introduction - Structure of EMTA
EMTA is managed by the Executive Committee, who meet at least four times a year, and who each act as a trainee representative to one of the College of Emergency Medicine committees. Most of the CEM committees are represented. Any elected member of the executive committee will hold their post for two years (or up to six months after gaining their CCT), and may stand for re-election once.
The council are made up of the executive and the regional trainee representatives, each of whom are elected by their peers in their designated training regions (deanery). They meet once a year at the annual conference. They act as essential conduits between the trainees in each region and EMTA, and thereby the CEM.
News, information, concerns and questions can be communicated via the regional representatives. They usually remain in post for three years before the post must be re-balloted.
If you are an Emergency Medicine trainee, hold an ST4/5/6 post or are an SpR, and are a member of the College, you are eligible to stand for a post on the executive committee.
For contact details of the executive committee and regional representatives, you must log in.
