Our residents have exposure to all aspects of emergency medicine in a friendly and supportive learning environment. They are intimately involved in our nationally recognised research program and our well established ultrasound and simulation programs. Dedicated resident simulation sessions are held on a weekly basis and we are committed to providing the required emergency ultrasound experience for both IFEM competency and CPoCUS IP.
