The AMETS (Acute Medicine Emergency Training Using Simulation) course is for senior Core Medical Trainees, ACCS Trainees and Specialty Trainees in Medical Specialities in the early years of training.

Develop your teamworking and leadership skills using realistic medical emergencies in a safe, non-judgmental environment using high-fidelity simulation equipment. Scenarios based around 'emergency presentations' in the Acute Internal Medicine (AIM) curriculum is included.

The course will prepare trainees for the role of  ‘Registrar’ in  dealing with acutely ill medical patients that they will encounter. You will not be expected to manage all medical emergencies independently - as in real life, help is always available!

The course aims to:

  • explore the complex and demanding role of the medical registrar
  • consider the varied facets of the role
  • manage clinical emergencies at senior level
  • direct, support and teach junior team members
  • re-visit Human Factors at senior level
  • engage in constructive group discussion.

Course director: Dr Godwin Simon, Consultant Physician, Acute Medicine, Diabetes & Endocrinology
