How does the competition work?


The competition will consist of eight teams of healthcare students (four or five students per team) and respective mentors. They will compete against each other in preliminary rounds on Wednesday and Thursday. The winning teams from each group will then compete against each other in the finals to determine the SESAM SimUniversity 2020 Champions.

Each team will be confronted with basis 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.
