Emergency Medicine Short Course - Contact Tuition

Interests: Emergency / Medicine


Many hospitals and emergency units lack the capacity to provide adequate emergency care due to inadequately trained healthcare practitioners. In support of the initiative for adequately trained emergency healthcare practitioners the WHO sectioned a global call for this initiative in Dec 2018 . It is imperative that patients presenting with potentially life-threatening conditions receive the correct management to preserve life. The unfortunate reality therefore is that significant mistakes may happen. The Short Course in Emergency Medicine is specifically designed to provide practitioners with an understanding and skills to manage emergency care.

Developed by experienced emergency medicine experts the course aims at equipping practitioners with the necessary skill set to establish an ordered approach amongst demanding circumstances.
