The 2019 AMSA-ACOM SIM Competition

The 2019 AMSA-ACOM Simulation Competition took place on the weekend of November 22nd and did not disappoint. Following months of anticipation, eight teams went head to head with multiple simulated emergency cases. Local practitioners served as judges and provided their constructive feedback, which these teams and audience members alike can implement not only in simulated cases, but their future practices as well.

Each round was worthy of a “finals” title, as these teams had already undergone a single-elimination round in September. This year marked the largest turnout to date, with 22 teams vying for the opportunity to train with our very own Dr. Giannini for eight weeks in preparation for this event. Many thanks go out to the SIM faculty and fellows that put in the countless hours into making this possible. Also, to the ACOM administration, leadership, and student volunteers for their support and enthusiasm throughout the entire process. Cotard’s Delusionals will represent ACOM at the 2020 AMSA National Sim Challenge in April 2020.
