"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.

To express your interest for a future Rotto Ramble event, please email the Events Team.

This once-in-a-lifetime event assisted participants to:

  • Gain applicable skills and knowledge that will help them deal with real-life emergencies.
  • Learn from emergency physicians and educators with expertise in wilderness medicine training.
  • Discover how they react under pressure in emergency situations and learn how to respond in a safe and constructive manner.
  • Build and form networks, industry connections and friendships with other participants, colleagues and specialists.
