Content

The care of critically ill patients is a challenging and highly specialised area of health care practice. The polio pandemic in the 1950s led to the birth of the modern Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

The MSc/PGDip courses in Year 1 are designed to introduce the academic skills required to complete the course and apply evidence based practice. The students will also start the in depth exploration of core clinical subjects in Critical Care and begin to produce independent reports/essays for submission online.

In Year 2 students will further enhance their knowledge of core Critical Care subjects and be introduced to leadership and management principles as well as clinical governance and quality Improvement in Critical Care.

In Year 3, MSc students will write a dissertation around a topic of their choice allowing them to use the skills of academic enquiry learned.
