The Acute Care Program  is aimed at residents, particularly RMO-1s who are thinking of a career in an acute specialty. The Program is a 1 hour session on Thursday lunchtime between 12.30 & 13.30 and alternates each week between small group tutorials and focused practical clinical scenarios.

Our aim is to enable you to manage sick patients until help arrives.

Between February and December we cover about 40 topics covering common acute situations that you might come across in your day to day work as a resident.

Those who have done the course in the past have found this format very useful.
