The COMETS course is a full day of simulation training in the recognition and management of acutely ill patients for core medical trainees.
Develop your team-working and leadership skills using realistic medical emergencies in a safe, non-judgmental environment using high-fidelity simulation equipment. Scenarios based around 'emergency presentations' and 'top 20 presentations' in the core medical trainee (CMT) curriculum 2009 and amendments 2011 are included.
The course is aimed at CMTs in their early training to prepare them for acutely ill medical patients that they will encounter both on call and during routine work. You will not be expected to manage all medical emergencies independently - as in real life, help is always available!
"Scenarios reflect real-life situations."
"Approachable and supportive faculty."
"Please organise more simulation training - it has been very useful!"
"Hands-on experience leading a team."

The Faculty of Medical Science, opened in 2014. Based on our riverside campus in Chelmsford and Young Street campus in Cambridge, we deliver innovative and clinically relevant teaching and research across three departments:
Thanks to our close relationships with the major clinical-care providers in the east of England, there are significant opportunities for collaboration and student placements across a variety of clinical sites.
We offer exciting opportunities for research and education in the allied health professions. We also translate science and epidemiology into health education and primary care, and deliver taught Master’s programmes to qualified medics. We have a flourishing community of PhD and MD(Res) students across all of our research fields.
Our advanced learning facilities include state-of-the-art clinical skills laboratories and simulation suites, which mirror real-life clinical situations. We also have a fantastic, modern library and a wide range of science labs and ICT suites.
