Centre for Rural Emergency Medicine

At the Centre for Rural Emergency Medicine (CREM) we focus on the coordination and delivery of effective emergency medical services in rural south-west Victoria.

We also provide training in emergency medicine for students and health professionals working in rural and regional locations.


Our research

We have a strong interest in the difference between clinical outcomes in rural and metropolitan areas. We're especially concerned with the outcomes for cardiac emergencies and head injuries.

If this is an area you have a particular interest in for your postgraduate research degree, we’d love to hear from you.
