Course Description

The intensive care unit (ICU) is an area specialized where skilled personnel and sophisticated equipment are readily available to manage critically ill patients. It is the most expensive, technologically advanced and resource-intensive area of medical care. Current trend is that the departments of anesthesia and internal medicine share the responsibility of managing these beds. There is a strong demand to increase the ICU beds in all hospitals due to rise in aging population and increasing burden of diseases. However, there is paucity of trained specialists in critical care medicine. Some reports suggest that by 2020, there will likely be a 35% shortage in critical care doctors.

The course “Masterclass in Critical Care Medicine” is designed to address this acute shortage of trained professionals to manage critical care units. It will impart the knowledge and skills needed to provide critical care to patients admitted in the ICU. Experience and knowledge gained from this course will help improve the care delivered not only in the ICU but also to critically ill patients in other areas such as the emergency room, postoperative care unit and in disaster settings. During the course the students will become familiar with the ICU setup, quality and safety needs in the ICU, general principles of critical care and management of specific critical illnesses.

Apart from online reading content, there are Live Virtual classes (webinars) by expert faculty throughout the course to complement the curriculum. This course is complemented by a 3-month rotational internship wherein the training doctor is posted in various critical care units of accredited training hospitals. This course is certified by Medvarsity.
