What will I learn?

Intensive Care Medicine is rapidly emerging as a standalone specialty throughout the world. With sepsis as a leading cause of death and a growing population with an increasing number of manageable comorbidities, the burden on ICU is rising. Learning opportunities are delivered by experts in Critical Care in one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK. Areas covered include hot topics such as; sepsis, multi-organ failure and Critical Care governance.

This course provides an opportunity to obtain a postgraduate degree in this developing and exciting clinical field. The programme is taught at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) which has the largest critical care facilities in Scotland and one of the largest in the UK. The hospital itself was opened in 2015 and is one of the biggest in Europe. The programme is delivered by experts in the field of critical care using a multimodal teaching approach which includes lectures, seminars, simulated cases and ward rounds.

The programme is delivered mainly at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow and at the University Teaching and Learning Centre on campus. The learning and teaching approach is varied and includes lectures and tutorials, seminars, set exercises, simulated clinical scenarios, and simulated ward round at the critical care floor at the QEUH. There will be emphasis, for some of the assignments, on reflection, leadership and specific application of new knowledge within the students’ own working environments giving them a unique and bespoke learning opportunity.
