"This weekend exceeded my expectations completely!! Definitely a highlight of medicine so far!" - 2019 participant
Rotto Ramble 2019 enabled participants to test their medical skills and knowledge responding to simulated emergency scenarios in an ‘Amazing Race’ style on the beaches and tourist hot spots of Rottnest Island. Participants worked as a team to diagnose, stabilise and save the lives of ‘casualties’ under the guidance of specialist emergency physicians from WA’s hospital emergency departments.
