JEM – Junior Emergency Medicine Event


JEM – Junior Emergency Medicine – 25th and 26th September 2015

The REACH partnership was recently able to support a collaborative event between two of our local universities. Coordinated by Navin Leanage, the Junior Emergency Medicine (JEM) event gave post-16 students the opportunity to learn acute clinical skills from current undergraduate students at the University of Leicester and De Montfort University. The event which spanned across two days was hosted at each of the institutions and made use of the equipment and facilities that the universities use to teach their HE students.

The aim of JEM is to give prospective healthcare students an engaging and educational simulation experience of acute clinical practice and an insight into their chosen career.

Please take a look at a selection of pictures from the event



A total of 54 students attended from eight local colleges and schools including; Beauchamp College, English Martyrs Catholic School, Gateway College, King Edward VI Five Ways, Leicester Grammar, Loughborough High School, Regent College, Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College.

These students were given a unique chance to meet and work with current medical students and nursing students allowing them to get an insight into applying for courses and the practicalities of being a student on the course.

If you would like your students to be involved in the event this year please apply here.
