Network Five Emergency Medicine

We are Pramod, Shreyas, Kit, Caroline and Samoda – a group of trainees and consultants from the Emergency Medicine Training Network Five (NSW).

We host regular Journal Club episodes discussing some of the latest research and publications relevant to emergency medicine and its practice within Australia.

In addition to this, we have also started two new segments:

  • Emergency Medicine Case Series: real-life cases with clinical or diagnostic challenges.
  • Emergency Medicine Conversations: interviews with emergency physicians who are involved in very interesting things!

Thank you for listening!
