Cambridge Critical Care Education Group
This blog has been developed by the staff of all three intensive care units in Cambridge: Cardiothoracic Critical Care at Royal Papworth Hospital and the John V Farman Intensive Care and Neurosciences and Trauma Critical Care Units at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. We are continuously developing this blog to support teaching and recruitment, but please also contact us about employment opportunities – we can usually design specific rotations to suit interests and experience.
Lately, we have developed the Cambridge Clinical Medicine Programme which has been designed to enhance the clinical and non clinical skills of experienced clinicians and broaden their understanding of healthcare education, research, leadership, and leadership. This programme includes the PGCert in Clinical Research, Education, and Leadership which we offer in conjunction with either rotational or single unit fellow posts in any of the intensive care units in Cambridge.
Education, Research, Courses
We have vibrant education and research clusters across critical care in Cambridge. Our educational activity includes local teaching and journal clubs on each of the three units plus annual Cambridge Critical Care Group Study Days three times per year which are free to all trainees in the East of England.
We have a worldwide reputation for our research which is conducted into traumatic brain injury, lung inflammation, machine learning and health informatics, coagulopathy of trauma, amongst a wide range of other fields.
