Paramedic FernoSim

20 - 21 September 2018  |  SeaWorld Conference Centre, Gold Coast Australia


FernoSim is a high-fidelity, fast-paced scenario based competition designed to hone paramedics'  communication and clinical skills. The event is alot of fun, a great opportunity to network and form new friendships. Join the fun - enter a team!

FernoSim is held on Friday afternoon/evening, in conjunction with Paramedics Australasia's International Conference  which runs from 20 - 22 September. Depending on the number of entries received, we may need to run a series of clinically-based Prelimary Rounds on Thursday 20 September. Paramedic Teams entering FernoSim should take this into account when planning their trip.
