SESAM Sim University is an opportunity for teams of undergraduate healthcare students (preferably teams of four, interprofessional) to compete against each other by taking part in simulation scenarios. Scenarios mirror basic emergency situations (resuscitation, anaphylaxis, myocardial infarction) reflecting the students’ level of knowledge/skills.

After each scenario, students are debriefed by expert facilitators, with a focus on promoting non-technical skills such as leadership, situational awareness, decision making, communication, and assertiveness, in addition to clinical reasoning within a team. Remote, online heats are conducted early in the year, with successful teams being invited to the finals at the Annual Meeting of SESAM, which in 2024 will be held in Prague.
