The SimWar is back!

The Simulation war is your annual rendez-vous during the EuSEM yearly conference. Whether you are an In-hospital or Pre-hospital EM team, join us and compete against other teams from different countries from all over Europe in a fun and friendly manner. This competition will be brought to you by an international panel of highly qualified experts in simulation, and will feature different scenarii on the latest manikins.

It will be held during the EuSEM Vienna Conference on Monday 3 October 2016 in room Maria-Theresien-Apartment I.

The competing teams will have to deal with various emergency clinical situations including adult and/or pediatric scenarii, trauma and psychiatry. Standard ED Resus Room or ambulance material will be provided and should be used by the participating teams. Independent judges will evaluate the teams’ performances. The winning team is the one that achieves the highest scores.
