Critical Care Education

Our approach to education and training

Intensive Care Education and Training in Cambridge

Our approach to critical care education in Cambridge is a mix of unit specific teaching which involves formal seminars,  bed side teaching, and journal clubs, combined with Cambridge-wide initiatives such as the Cambridge Critical Care Education Group study days which occur three times per year, one for Transplant, General, and Haematology ICU, one for Neurosciences and Trauma, and one for Cardiothoraicic ICU.

These study days are free to trainees throughout the East of England. Our current CCCEG Neurosciences and Trauma Day flyer can be accessed at the button below.

The educational content of this website is being constantly developed and will shortly include all of our journal club and seminar output, a calendar, and publicity for educational activity.


The Cambridge Clinical Medicine Programme

Cambridge University Health Partners, the Academic Health Sciences Centre, and The Institute for Continuing Education at the University of Cambridge have developed the Cambridge Clinical Medicine Programme – designed to enhance the specialist skills of experienced clinicians and broaden their understanding of healthcare education, research, leadership and management. This programme includes the PGCert in Clinical Medicine a suite of courses which combine clinical, academic, and vocational training for senior trainees and new consultants.

We are pleased to offer a twelve month rotation between the three intensive care units in Cambridge combined with the PGCert – a rotation designed for aspiring tertiary centre Intensive Care Medicine subspecialists.
