Victorian FACEM Study Group Information Page

In 2017, the infamous “James Hayes Sessions” will be run in Melbourne, although the teaching is now being shared by a group of Victorian FACEMs. The Victorian FACEM Study Group sessions will be held weekly at ACEM in West Melbourne.  Sessions will run over 18 weeks, it is free to attend, however we ask that attendance be limited to ACEM Senior Registrar trainees who are planning to sit the 2017.2 Fellowship exam.

To register your interest in attending please contact James Hayes via email: james.hayes@nh.org.au

(Skip the waffle, take me to the timetable!)

Please be mindful that these sessions are run for the benefit of those about to sit the exam, if too many people show up, places may be restricted to those sitting the next exam.
