The Advanced and Complex Medical Emergencies (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.
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 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.
The ACME Course is available to Fellows, Advanced Trainees in their final two years of training, Emergency Medicine Certificate holders, SMO/CMOs working in emergency departments. Trainees must provide a letter of support from their DEMT prior to registration for the Course. SMO/CMOs must provide a letter of support from the FACEM Director prior to registration for the Course.
