Budding Resuscitation Team 2024


Budding Resuscitation Team

Emergency Medicine is a system-based specialty that deals with unscheduled and undifferentiated patients 24/7 throughout the year. This unique programme offers high school students an experiential learning opportunity in emergency care. Participants will undergo intensive training provided by academic emergency physicians from School of Clinical Medicine. Instead of traditional first-aid training, participants will acquire life-saving skills and insights from an emergency physician’s perspective. They will learn in HKUMed teaching labs, in the community, and at the HKU-Shenzhen Hospital outside Hong Kong. Detailed course components include:


  1. Learning to offer life support;
  2. Learning to manage common medical emergencies;
  3. Response to mass casualty incidents;
  4. Response to major trauma;
  5. Observation of pre-hospital and hospital care to emergency patients;
  6. Emergency Care System in Hong Kong and Shenzhen;
  7. Sharing sessions from emergency medicine specialists, medical students and patients
