BASE Camp

Interprofessional pediatric emergency medicine team training in the emergency care of critically ill and injured children.

Overview

BASE Camp is an international high-impact, learner-centered, simulation-based boot camp designed to provide multiprofessional teams of pediatric emergency medicine providers with the tools and experiential learning opportunities to practice interprofessional teamwork behaviors, advanced life support skills, advanced airway procedures, trauma resuscitation skills, and mass casualty incident disaster management. BASE Camp’s mission is to “level the playing field” among PEM fellows, nurses, and child life specialists by creating learning opportunities that equalize the training experiences of a diverse group of providers, and by empowering an interprofessional team approach in the care of critically ill and injured children. The course is led by over 75 interdisciplinary faculty from around the world. Nearly 2/5 of all new U.S. pediatric emergency fellows are trained by BASE Camp each year.

Curriculum

BASE Camp is structured to create progressive opportunities for educational achievement and features over 150 team-based interprofessional patient simulations and 15 workshops over two days. BASE Camp’s core content is focused on team leadership and communication, critical care resuscitation, CPR, difficult pediatric airway principles, advanced airway techniques, mass-casualty incident disaster triage, and emergency trauma resuscitation skills. Multi-tiered learning objectives with escalating levels of complexity using the ACGME core and sub-competencies, BCEN, and CPEN accreditation content standards serve as BASE Camp's curricular framework.
