A high-quality acute medicine course

ACUMEN, which covers all aspects of acute medical care, allows you to practise your skills in diagnosing and managing a whole host of conditions. It is aimed at clinical trainees specialising in acute medicine.

Interactive training on emergency medicine

The knowledge sessions, which have been written by practising clinicians from the UK, include many interactive features, such as videos and self-assessment exercises, to reinforce learning.

Using scenario-based exercises, you can practise your skills in managing various emergency medical situations in the safety of a virtual ward, with 'patients' experiencing symptoms from cardio-respiratory arrest through to breathlessness and chest pain. You can learn how to:

  • review a medical history
  • perform a virtual examination
  • create a management plan
  • review the patient outcomes

You can compare your performance with that of an expert clinician, helping you to identify any knowledge gaps.
