I am an Emergency Physician (trained in Australasia) with a special interest in paediatrics and medical simulation and education, currently working in an inner city hospital in Amsterdam, the OLVG. I moved back to the Netherlands a year ago to help EM in Europe make the next step, the step to consultant level. The EM Masterclasses are an important factor is this step. As one of the organisers of this ED Critical Care Course, I am very happy to be part of the faculty. I’m looking forward to see this course unfold and to work with some great EM minds from across the world, both faculty and participants.
