Certificate Course in Simulation Based Critical Care Medicine

CRITICAL CARE MEDICINE-Final format-1

Brief

Why such a course.

  1. In the real world practise today there is a growing need for simulation based training to learn principles of CRM (crisis resource management); Team work; ICU protocols etc. before actually working with patients as more complex medico legal issues are involved while dealing with ICU patients.
  2. Plenty of ICU related topics workshops are available for training in the market today, however none of which is simulation based.
  3. Paucity of time with most of the working Intensivist doctors in the city to do a full time fellowship course.
  4. Can be a great value added training opportunity for such class of intensivist who may have to spend only a weekend a month for such training at the state-of-the-art Medical Simulation Laboratory at D Y Patil University.
  5. A beneficial course for all health science personnel interested to make their career in the field of intensive care medicine.

Four Months training. Demonstration & Hands on experience in Medical Simulation Lab (Selective Weekends only) with last 15 Days observership in various ICU’s of 1500 bedded D Y Patil Hospital.

Eligible Participants

Individuals completed their MBBS / BAMS / BHMS / BUMS / BSc Nursing, etc.
