Advanced and Complex Emergencies (ACME) Course
The Advanced and Complex Medical Emergencies course (ACME) is a three day course run by the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM) using hi-fidelity simulation, group discussions, scenarios and interactive workshops to explore the complex speciality of emergency medicine.
