At the beginning of teaching the clinical modules, we try to convey an approach and skills that can be applied at all levels of specificity.

Early recognition and related emergency response skills, which form the basis of the chain of survival, are crucial elements of clinical practice. The skill of recognition is based on risk management, which is also the basis of emergency care. Technically, this skill is patient-specific and therefore requires an individualized vision, risk orientation, time management and communication skills. The related mandatory emergency call furthers communication skills, and its mandatory use is the basis of an integrated, team-based form of care. Skills are acquired in a patient-oriented system.

The form and technique of the targeted practical skill transfer carries content elements specific to emergency care – so that the student is indirectly exposed to them and can integrate them into his/her medical practice.

The output of this practice-focused module is aimed at enabling the student to recognise the vulnerability of individuals of any age, gender, in any setting, with any pathology of any origin. Indirectly, they will learn the process and first steps of triage at a basic skill level. The aim is also to be able to call for help as soon as danger is detected.

Structure of the two-week basic emergency module

Quick Look (1×30 min Lecture – NOT REQUIRED)
Symptom groups / Red flags (1×45 min Presentation – NOT REQUIRED)
Parameters (1×30 min Presentation – NOT REQUIRED
Bedside Exercise (8×45 min – 4×45 min REQUIRED)
SBAR Exercise (2×45 min – REQUIRED)
OMV Exercise (2×45 min – NOT REQUIRED)
SIM Exercise (4×45 min – NOT REQUIRED)
EMS Exercise (90 min Lecture – NOT REQUIRED and 90 min Exercise – REQUIRED)
Consultation – Debriefing (90 minutes Lecture – NOT REQUIRED)


The aim of the sub-module is to familiarise the student with:

  • the purpose and structure of the whole module
  • the methodology of the exercises
  • his/her own tasks (the expectations),
  • his/her rolemotivate the student to participate actively and openly in the module
  • the content of acute patient-centred care
  • the place and role of emergency care
  • the conceptual and practical elements of emergency care
  • risk orientation
  • a focused mindset
  • time dependency
  • integration (patient-centred, team-based)
  • indirectly, you can learn
  • teamwork
  • structured, frontal communication

The aim of this submodule is to familiarise the student with:

  • the essence of quick view
  • the aspects that allow a patient at risk to be quickly picked out from the crowd by the system
  • the decision process leading to the decision
  • patient at risk
  • potentially at risk
  • likely to be stable
  • the process of requesting or calling for help – its communication characteristics (SBAR structure)

The aim of this submodule is to familiarise the student with:

  • Basic thinking in emergency care
  • The basic concepts of emergency care
  • Risk factors / red flags associated with symptom groups  

The aim of this sub-module is to familiarize the student with:

  • Basic modalities (NIBP, P, SpO2, T)
  • Measurement technology of the basic modalities
  • Sources of error and pitfalls of the measurement technologies
  • The normal values of the basic modalities and, together with the previous modules, the KRP system

The aim of the sub-module is for the student to learn/practice:

Synthesizing practice – based on what has been learnt so far, now it is necessary to perform a complex, special, emergency approach – focused patient examination
Symptom group specific thinking
Identifying the leading symptom/complaint
Detection of relevant risks of symptom/complaint
The aim of the “Bedside” exercises is to put into practice and practice the knowledge of the above modules and to accompany patients through complex patient journeys and care.
The aim of this sub-module is to familiarise the student with:

Deployment management
The specialities of task recruitment
The different types of ambulance units
The specialities of the rescue team
The different types of rescue techniques
Aim of the sub-module:

Instructors will make sure the student understands the emergency approach to the patient
To ensure that the student can apply the emergency approach to the patient
Call for help if necessary – refer patient
Understands and applies SBAR communication
Given that all exercises, with the exception of the Briefing and EMS module, are largely bedside, we ask that all students bring a clean white coat to all exercises. White coats are not required for SBAR, OMV and SIM exercises.


Schedule for the current semester is available in the Neptun and Moodle systems. 

Please read the detailed guidance in the Moodle system before starting the practice! 

Please bring white coat to all practices.
