The International Centre for Excellence in Emergency Medicine (CEEM) strives to provide a robust and contemporaneous offering of courses happening in and around Emergency Medicine. Unfortunately, occasionally unforeseen events necessitate the shifting or cancellation of courses, in which case we will endeavour to inform you in time and refund any monies already paid towards a course.

Administration of these events is handled through the Notfallzentrum of the Inselspital, Bern. The website will clearly state if an outside provider is organising an event.

Courses that are very popular will require advanced booking. Please be reminded that a booking is only secured on payment. Up to that point, CEEM will take bookings on a “first come, first served” basis. Kindly note full prepayment is required before confirmation of registration will be sent. If your institution or the respective provincial government is paying your registration fees, it is advisable to follow up your payment status and ensure payment is made at least a month before the course commences. This is particularly important if pre-course reading is required. Hence it is often advisable for you to pay for your own fees and claim the amount back from your institution to avoid disappointment. You will not be able to collect any materials or attend a course/ conference/ lecture series if payment is outstanding.

A cancellation fee of 5% will be charged if a confirmed booking is cancelled more than 60 days from the start of a course. If you cancel within 30 calendar days of the course date, a 50% cancellation fee will be raised. If you cancel within 14 calendar days of the start of a course, no refund will be given, unless you are able to furnish us with substantial reasons for cancellation with documentary proof. Even in the latter cases, a refund is at the discretion of the organizers. No refunds will be given if a candidate did not read the minimum qualification requirements for a particular course and fails as a result of having insufficient background knowledge.
