This programme enables entrants to enhance their knowledge in the field of critical care, improve research and academic writing skills, and consolidate clinical experience in a simulated environment at our state-of-the-art facilities at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital critical care floor. There is an emphasis on leadership skills and the application of evidence based medicine to plan and drive change in critical care. In addition to clinical topics, the programme explores non-clinical areas such as Audit and Quality Improvement amongst others.
