Emergency Medicine Education and Training (EMET) for Urgent Care Centres

On Tuesday 12th November, the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM) Manager for the Emergency Medicine Education and Training (EMET) Program, Mathew Davies visited the EMET team at Northeast Health Wangaratta.

Northeast Health is a hub site for the Emergency Medicine Education and Training (EMET) program, which provides training to our local Urgent Care Centres (Alpine Health, Beechworth Health Service, Benalla Health, Mansfield District Hospital and Yarrawonga Health) through Outreach Sessions facilitated by our Fellow of Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (FACEM), Dr Fabrice Pierre.

The program also supports the doctors undertaking their Emergency Medicine Certificate (EMC) and Emergency Medicine Diploma (EMD) through the college. The visit provided an opportunity for ACEM to see our Hub Site, tour our Emergency Department and discuss how the EMET Program is tracking and how the college can assist with any issues and add value to our program.
