FRCEM Primary Tips

On this page we've put together what we feel are the most important resources for getting you through the FRCEM Primary. Clicking on the images below  should take you straight to them.


Firstly we would obviously highly recommend the FRCEM tutor question bank as we think its excellent (and we wrote it!) but self promotion aside what other resources are going to help you pass the primary?


Many would consider it a dry read but revision notes for the FRCEM primary by Mark Harrison is a good reference book. It is essentially an updated version of  his book Revision notes for the MCEM part A. His interpretation of what you need to know on areas where the syllabus is vague is very useful.


A really useful blog I found is pondering EM. Written by an emergency trainee in Essex it has some excellent links, tips and general advice on how to setup and plan for the primary.


In terms of anatomy two really good online resources we like are and (though the later is moving more of its resource to premium content). If you prefer books then clinical anatomy by Harold Ellis is a good reference.


For ECG's and toxicology is excellent.


A number of trainees I know have reported back favourably on the Bromley emergency course though some have found the expense offputting.


An upcoming resource to keep an eye on is the FOAMed movement which aims to bring free medical education to the fore
