Content

The MSc Critical Care (online) programme for health care professionals who encounter critically ill adults in their daily practice. These professionals include:
nurses; doctors in training; senior doctors from all specialties; allied health professionals (for example, physiotherapists, paramedics and dietitians).

Prospective students will often be working full time in professional roles and need a flexible approach to study. The programme is therefore designed as a part-time, fully online, MSc programme.

You will study core clinical subjects in year one and two of the programme, covering:
recognition of critical illness; initial treatment and stabilisation; advanced organ system support; coordination of care within the intensive care unit; human factors.

You can exit at the end of 1 year with the PgCert.

You can exit at the end of 2 years with the PgDip.
