"The EMCC course is like an Emergency Medicine Bootcamp"

What is the EMCC? 

The EMCC (Emergency Medicine Core Competencies) course is an intensive 3-day simulation-based course in Emergency Medicine.  The course material is freely available to course instructors who wish to offer the course.


Course Objectives

The proximate goal of the EMCC is to boost competence in core areas of EM through intensive scenario-based training and group discussion.

The ultimate goal of the course is to promote the development of scenario-based, regularly recurring training in EM at the level of individual training programs in Emergency Medicine.  The EMCC strives to promote this goal by:

  • demonstrating how competence in various areas of EM can be developed through scenario-based training

  • providing templates for scenarios tailored to developing specific competences

  • entitling course instructors to run the course locally

  • providing material for local, scenario-based training

In addition, the EMCC promotes checklists as a tool to deliver safe and efficient patient care.
