“Having worked as a licenced MD for 3 years but being quite new to Emergency Medicine, I strongly recommend this course. Not only does it provide you with knowledge on; what to do, when and how to do it – it also help you even enjoy your shifts! Although being quite complex at times, the simulated scenarios and work-based assessments are an excellent way to train clinical skills in a safe environment with qualified feedback. The CEMP course is a real motivation booster and the ER is the place to be!”

“The CEMP provides a good balance of theory as well as face-to-face lectures and workshops which gave me a better understanding of the practical skills. The course schedule is structured clearly into weekly tasks which contains different academic and practical parts.”
