Phemtec 2023

PHEMTEC at Warwick Medical School welcomed record numbers for 2023 event

 Organisers of the Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine & Trauma Educational Conference (PHEMTEC) have once again delivered a superb weekend of talks, workshops and simulations at PHEMTEC 2023. 

Students and qualified healthcare professionals from Warwick Medical School and beyond experienced two days of hands-on learning to triage & treat a wide range of medical emergencies in immersive high-fidelity scenarios over the weekend of 15 and 16 April. Delegates signed up to experience first-hand how to respond effectively and manage complications in emergency scenarios during talks, workshops, and mass-casualty simulation by experts across the world of prehospital emergency medicine.

The Two days of talks & workshops included five inspiring talks from expert pre-hospital clinicians, 5 workshops on skills such as advanced airways, point of care ultrasound and A-E skills, and realistic mass casualty simulation across three zones - triage, casualty clearing and resus. The conference was awarded 11 hours of CPD by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

Co-Chairs Amir Mahmood, a second-year medical student and Stanimir Stoilov, a third-year medical student, both at Warwick Medical School were delighted with how the event was delivered. Amir commented on the success of this year’s event ‘after months of hard work, it was worth it to see students and professionals from multiple roles come together to learn all about PHEM and develop skills that they were able to practice in high-fidelity mass casualty simulations. The success of the conference is a credit to the committee's dedication in making this a weekend to remember’ 

Bryony Moore, a 2nd year medical student who attended the event commented ‘PHEMTEC was so informative and even more importantly, incredibly fun. The students who dedicated their time putting everything together should be incredibly proud of themselves. It has cemented that a career in pre-hospital emergency medicine is for me, and has given me practical advice as to how to achieve that goal!!’ 

The event will once again raise valuable funds for West Midlands Central Accident, Resuscitation & Emergency (CARE) Team with the organisers last year donating £700 from conference tickets towards the charity. The CARE Team are a charitable organisation who respond to serious medical incidents within the West Midlands, and provide life saving interventions.

Organisers would particularly like to thank everyone who attended, and key members of staff Dr Kate Owen, Emily Reid and Professor Lesley Roberts for their continued support and guidance. In addition, they would like to express their gratitude to the CARE Team, the conference faculty team and the 60+ volunteers simulation patients for their support in enabling the event to happen. A special mention also to the organising committee of medical student, who have spent over 6 months organising the conference.
