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.



Fortnightly paid and protected education days encompassing simulation, ultrasound, practical skill sessions, didactic lectures, network days, ACEM Fellowship exam preparation and a recently expanded Primary exam program.

Daily morning Micro Sim – core topics covered each week e.g. ALS, APLS, Newborn resus & Trauma. Daily afternoon Airway Drills (MERIT) to help us plan for those feared difficult airway scenarios.

A Special Skills US term with our own ASUM/ACEM accredited Sonotown US course.

ACEM trainee education fund of $3500 yearly ($2500 for non-ACEM trainees).

Attractive opportunities to rotate to other critical care specialties including ICU and anaesthetics. In house credentialing of core emergency procedures with e-logbook and electronic CV development.

The hospital is currently being redeveloped and we will be welcoming a brand-new ED, due for completion end of 2021. This will be an 82-bed department with associated 25- bed EDSSU.

The new ED is part of a massive hospital expansion with new and enhanced paediatrics, mental health services, ICU and OT.

The redevelopment will include a Research Institute developed in conjunction with local university partners.
