Course summary

This programme will give you both practical experience and academic insight into several areas of intensive care paediatrics. You will learn the theory behind current approaches, whilst also exploring the latest research that is driving the speciality forward. This focus makes the programme of value to both general paediatricians and potential intensivists. You will learn about the theory and practice of paediatric intensive care medicine (PICM), covering general issues, cardiac critical care and transport of the critically ill child. Content includes topics from UK and international PICM curricula, and will help towards building the knowledge and understanding required to undertake the European Paediatric/Neonatal Intensive Care professional qualification.

Careers

It is expected that most of the medically-qualified graduates from this pathway will pursue a career involving paediatric intensive care medicine in the UK or abroad. This may be as a general paediatrician with an interest in intensive care or as specialist intensivists. Nurses and associated professionals are likely to be looking for career progression into senior posts in PICM in both clinical and management roles.

Employability

This programme provides experience in current practice within paediatric intensive care medicine and equips you to do research in both PICM and other areas of interest. These skills increase general employability and may open up training opportunities and more senior posts in PICM going forward.
