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.

Trainees

Trainees

We are an extremely supportive group of FACEMs who are very enthusiastic about wellness and wellbeing, teaching, POCUS, simulation and ACEM exam preparation.

Fortnightly paid and protected education days which align with the FACEM curriculum and integrate HALO simulation scenarios, didactic presentations, practical skill sessions and network days. We also hold fortnightly workshops on POCUS, communication and resilience, investigation interpretation, journal club and monthly M&M.

Campbelltown ED has its own robust ACEM exam preparation program with 4 hours per week of protected face-to-face workshops and high yield topic online modules.

We run daily in-situ simulation (resus drills and airway training) every morning and afternoon Mon-Fri. Our aims are to familiarise the resus team with one another, their roles and responsibilities, in addition to equipment, policy and process familiarisation around core topics such as ALS, APLS, Newborn resus & Trauma.

Special skills terms in ultrasound and medical administration. We also have our own ASUM/ACEM accredited POCUS course, SonoTown.

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, and paediatrics.

Learn how to perform procedures the right way. We facilitate in house credentialing of core emergency procedures with e-logbook which are cross credentialed with other departments. We also facilitate CV building and interview preparation workshops.

We have a non-clinical FACEM dedicated to supervising and facilitating WBAs and procedures Mon to Fri to ensure training requirements are met.
