Simulation Courses

Here at St Vincent's Clinical Education & Simulation Centre, we are committed to delivering tailored skills courses. Our courses offer hands-on approach as well as theory and scenarios.


Advanced Complex Medical Emergencies (ACME)

The ACME course aims to use simulation training methods to improve the understanding of human factors and their impact on the quality of team-based clinical care within the specific emergency medicine environment. The course also features an update on key clinical skills with core modules on cardiovascular instability, airway and respiratory emergencies and complex emergencies. A further feature of the course is a set of minor modules available as rotating options within the overall course design.

While there is a significant immersive simulation component to the course, there are also small group discussions and mini-scenarios on various aspects of the complex specialty of Emergency Medicine. The ACME course aims to stimulate and provoke the experienced physician practicing Emergency Medicine and who wishes to be challenged. Because the emphasis in this course is on learning and sharing information, there is no formal assessment of participants.
