We at 1Medical are always looking for ways to assist doctors in furthering their education or reach their career goals. Therefore, we are keen to assist doctors following the Australian College of Emergency Medicine Fellowship program in being successful when completing the written and OSCE exams. We know both of these exams are extremely challenging and it’s the final hurdle prior to being granted your FACEM. That’s why we have partnered with “Ace the ACEM Exam” as they are fast becoming the leading Emergency Medicine Fellowship Education company in terms of success conversion with doctors who attend their courses. This program entails 6 month online programs with interactive Webinars conducted in small numbers, followed by an in depth 3-4 day immersive course prior to each of the exams. If this sounds like something that may be of use to you, please read on for more information and get in touch with us Benjamin Lepke at 1Medical to discuss an introduction.

What is Ace the ACEM Exam:

An  intensive online live  education program based in Australia,  reviewing the syllabus of the ACEM Written and OSCE Exam in detail,  allowing course attendees to immerse themselves in the clinical reasoning required to pass the Fellowship exams with ease. Every topic will be covered across the series of webinars.  The program wraps-up with an intensive face-to-face exam syllabus review over 3 days in Brisbane for the Written Exam and 4 days simulation for the OSCE exam.  The face-to-face is managed in small group workshops to allow individual feedback and the personalised touch our program offers.
