Welcome to Emergency Medicine Specialist Training Assessment Tool (EM-STAT) for Core Specialty Training in Emergency Medicine (CSTEM 1-3yrs)

We are currently integrating EM STAT (the tool for recording and submitting CSTEM workplace based assessments) into emnow.ie. This is to facilitate a single site for trainees and will allow us to make significant improvements to the recording process, based on your feedback. During the integration process, you will not be able to use EM-STAT to record work place assessments but the requirement for assessment remains the same. Assessments completed during this period of downtime will need to be completed on a hard copy form and the signed assessment(s) returned, either singly or batched, to Orla Mockler in the EM Training Office. Completed forms will be uploaded to the trainee’s user account once the system is live again.
Our plan is to have the new site up and running by the end of March 2016. In the meantime, we apologise for any inconvenience and should you have any queries, please contact us on omockler@rcsi.ie.
