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 Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
