Emergency Medicine & Trauma Medicine

The Emergency Department team are committed to providing high quality multidisciplinary simulation training.

We aim to use our frontline experience in treating critical unwell patients and looking at team dynamics to ensure an effective model on which to base simulation training with our colleagues in other specialties.

This is an exciting opportunity to provide innovative training and education. It will help us improve the quality of care and patient safety through the Simulation Centre and mobile simulation in the Emergency Department.
