What is Global Emergency Care Skills (GECS)?

GECS was founded in 2008 to provide emergency care and trauma skills training to doctors and nurses in developing countries where Emergency Medicine is a developing speciality. This is accomplished through the provision of a skills and simulation based course in trauma care, resuscitation skills and major incident management. The teaching faculty is composed of emergency medicine physicians from Ireland.

One of the core philosophies of GECS is that no fees are charged to participants. GECS courses are run free of any charge. The organisation is funded through voluntary contributions from instructors and from fundraising activities in Ireland throughout the year.
