6th annual ACOM simulation competition
The semifinals for the sixth annual ACOM simulation competition was held at the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine Saturday morning.
Teams of first and second year medical students competed against each other in a race to save their patient.
Winners of the semifinals face each other for the chance to compete in the national simulation competition in Washington D.C.
Team captain, Chris Grant says the competition prepares the students for real world situations.
"It teaches you to think on your feet. It teaches you to be confident in your skills. It teaches you to listen to your intuition. You think, 'okay maybe i should do this.' you don't think on it you just act on it. You just have to trust yourself. And it really helps submit your skills and your knowledge" Grant said.
ACOM last won the National sim-challenge event back in 2017 and went on to beat the French team to win the International Championship.
