St Mary's SARC: Forensic and Medical Examination for Rape & Sexual Assault Course (FMERSA) 2012

This two-module course presents Doctors and Nurses with the opportunity to train towards conducting forensic medical 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, focusing 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 qualification. St Mary’s FMERSA Course covers the syllabus for this and will provide an excellent study resource. Visit the St Mary's SARC website for further details.
