Course Description

The Certificate in Critical Care Medicine focuses on the management and treatment of critically ill patients who require intensive medical attention and close monitoring.

The intensive care unit (ICU) is a specialized area where highly skilled healthcare professionals and advanced equipment are available to treat seriously ill patients. Nowadays, the responsibility for managing ICU beds is often shared between the anesthesia and internal medicine departments. Due to the increasing number of older adults and the growing burden of diseases, there is a strong need to increase the number of ICU beds in hospitals. However, there is a shortage of trained specialists in critical care medicine.

The Certificate in Critical Care Medicine aims to address the shortage of trained professionals in managing critical care units. This course will provide the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver critical care to patients in the ICU. In this course, you will learn:

  1. How the ICU functions
  2. Skills for resuscitation
  3. Initial management of acutely ill patients
  4. How to order and interpret investigations in the ICU
  5. Practical knowledge about using fluids, blood products, and drugs in the ICU
  6. How to manage common problems seen in the ICU, such as imbalances in acid-base and electrolytes

This course is accredited by CPD (Continuing Professional Development). Upon completion, you will receive a certificate from the official CPD Standards Office.

Learning complex medical concepts through traditional textbooks and lectures can be difficult for healthcare professionals. It prevents them from applying this knowledge in a clinical setting. The Certificate in Critical Care Medicine uses a case-based learning approach within the Medvarsity learning framework to bridge this gap in medical education. With this unique method, healthcare professionals can study relevant medical content while learning through interactive case studies throughout the course. This provides them with specialty-specific cases and a structured approach for accurate diagnosis and customized treatment plans on a case-by-case basis.

At Medvarsity, we strive to help healthcare professionals accelerate their careers and better serve their communities.

Course validity: 4 months. There will be an extra charge for the extension of the course validity.
