Welcome

Campbelltown Emergency Department

Campbelltown Emergency Department

Campbelltown Emergency is a busy department which, with our linked site at Camden, saw 96,000 presentations in 2019.

We are a mixed ED located in South West Sydney with a 27% Paediatric caseload. We have ACEM accreditation for both Adult and Paediatric ED training, supervised by a group of enthusiastic ED Specialists. We enjoy a wide range of clinical services which are currently being expanded as part of a $700M redevelopment (new ED in 2021).

Our trainees work in a supported environment with an exposure to a great number of clinical presentations. This makes it a great place to build a solid foundation for your career in Emergency Medicine.
