How does the competition work?

The competition will consist of eight teams of healthcare students (five students per team). They will compete against each other on Thursday. The winning teams from each group will then compete against each other in the finals to determine the SESAM SimUniversity 2019 Champions.

Each team will be confronted with basic clinical emergency scenarios (e.g. resuscitation, allergic shock, myocardial infarction etc.). After every scenario, the team will be debriefed by expert facilitators with a focus on both medical treatment and non-technical skills. The facilitators will identify the winner based on their ratings.
