The Emergency Care programme at University of Galway is offered full-time over two calendar years via blended learning which is a combination of on-line learning and face-to-face workshops.

Students are required to complete a minimum of 500 clinical hours (reduced from previously-published 1,000 hours, on NMBI advice) before completing this programme.
