The program utilises blended learning approaches to maximise engagement and discussion: problem solving challenges, clinical skills workshops, scenario drills, interactive group discussions and fully immersive simulation scenarios with video assisted debriefing.
Created under the direction of the Australian & New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, the EMAC Course meets Fellowship training requirements and qualifies for 2 credit points per hour of Continuing Professional Development (Category 1).
EMAC is not accredited for the RACGP QI and CPD Program, but can be accredited for the JCCA GP Anaesthetist MOPS Program through ANZCA.
EMAC requires participants to be able to give an anaesthetic unsupervised. We require anaesthetic trainees to be at minimum within their BTY2 year of their specialty training before enrolling in the program. For those not in a training program, a useful prerequisite minimum level of experience is to be able to anaesthetise a patient for an appendicectomy unsupervised. Please contact Monash Simulation if you are unsure if you meet entry requirements.
You will be required to complete participant profile information and complete the required EMAC pre-reading.
EMAC commences at 8am each day and concludes at 12.30 pm on day 3. To keep the program to time, we request you arrive at 07:45am.
The course is fully catered for. Please inform us of any special dietary requirements at time of registration.
