About the programme

The Clinical Medicine Programme is built for aspiring tertiary centre intensive care medicine sub-specialists and offers explicitly individualised training focused on your areas of interest and personal development goals. This programme has been developed by Cambridge University Health Partners, the Academic Health Sciences Centre, and the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education. It comprises the following elements:

Master of Studies (MSt) in Clinical Medicine – A part-time Master’s degree, credentialed by the University of Cambridge, which provides clinical and academic training in subspecialty Intensive Care Medicine.

Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Medicine – A part-time, modular Postgraduate Certificate course, credentialed by the University of Cambridge, which provides training in clinical education, clinical leadership, and clinical research. In addition the PGCert is available as a one year part time programme.

Helmsmanship – A vocational, non-award bearing Helmsmanship (Healthcare Education, Leadership and Management) course delivered by Cambridge University Health Partners and the Judge Business School, which aims to develop the non-clinical skills required for consultant appointments.

Clinical Fellow Rotation – The programme includes a two-year rotation between the three adult intensive care units in Cambridge.

John V Farman Intensive Care Unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital

Neurosciences and Trauma Critical Care Unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital

Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit at Papworth Hospital

Each of these busy, state-of-the-art units has its own subspecialist interests, and between them they cover the full range of subspecialty adult intensive care. All three units have significant and unique research interests, and are affiliated with the University of Cambridge.
