The EMCC-Course (Emergency Medicine Core Competences) is a Europe-wide intensive 3-day simulation-based course in Emergency Medicine. The proximate goal of the EMCC is to boost core competences 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. In addition, the EMCC promotes checklists as a tool to deliver safe and efficient patient care. The course language is English.
