EMST courses now available (including in Adelaide)

Ok, ATLS/EMST may have gotten a bad rap recently, but it remains a good foundation for those who have not yet managed much trauma in a major trauma centre. It provides the basics and a common vernacular for efficient teamwork in managing trauma.


The college of surgeons, who run EMST in Australia have now launched a new enrolment system. Eligible candidates are now able to enrol and pay for courses online, rather than register to be placed on a waitlist. The courses for the year are released in 3 waves; the first wave is now open, the next opens on 2/2/16 then 31/5/16.
