St Mary's SARC: Forensic & Medical Examination for Rape and Sexual Assault (FMERSA) 2011

This two-module course presents Doctors and Nurses with the opportunity to train towards conducting forensic examinations of rape and sexual assault victims, under the direction of the UK’s longest established sexual assault referral centre and largest single-site university. The course includes the medical, psychological, social and legal aspects of rape and sexual assault, focussing on the forensic examination, the collection of evidence and testimony at court. The curriculum covered will help clinicians prepare to take the membership exam for the FFLM and also the Diploma FCASA. This Dip FCASA is held by the Apothecaries. The Department of Health is aiming for all clinicians in this line of work to have at least the Dip FCASA qualification. St. Mary’s FMERSA Course covers the syllabus for this and will provide an excellent study resource. All sessions are presented by expert practitioners in their fields, two of whom sit on the development board of Dip FCASA. Dr Cath White, the Course Director, is the Deputy Chief Examiner for the Sexual Offences aspect of the MFFLM.
