VictimBase (Initiative Project)

VictimBase is an online victim library for medical professionals to create and share victim simulations for education, training and research. The clinical conditions of these victims change when time progresses or when specific treatments are given.

VictimBase specifically focused on creating a database of Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) victims to be used in disaster medicine exercises and research across a number of different platforms including: paper based simulations, computer based (logistic) simulations, live exercises and triage exercises. The individual victims can also be used for small incident simulation and training.

The VictimBase project was launched by the EMDM Academy (, based on the need for a shared user-friendly database of dynamic victim simulations. The EMDM Academy manages independently the use and validity of VictimBase. VictimBase is designed to be used internationally.

Medical doctors can apply to become an author of VictimBase and create victim simulations.
