About the course


Resuscitation is a rapidly evolving area of medicine that crosses the boundaries of emergency medicine, intensive care medicine, anaesthesia, acute/trauma surgery and acute medicine. Early recognition of critical illness and appropriate resuscitation saves lives and reduces suffering for our patients. We offer an MSc, Postgraduate Diploma and (free) taster Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for you to develop your skills in this area under the guidance of an international faculty.

The faculty includes specialists in emergency medicine, pre-hospital care, anaesthesia, intensive care, diagnostic imaging, acute medicine, cardiology, infectious disease, haematology, toxicology and trauma/acute surgery. Our aim is to assist you in developing the skills to offer the highest standard of care to your patients and obtain a knowledge level to enable you to develop teaching and/or leadership roles in resuscitation medicine. This course incorporates teaching on diagnosis, resuscitation, pathophysiology, imaging, toxicology, CRM and pre-hospital care/mass casualty medicine under a single umbrella. The level of study and knowledge will go beyond most specialist exit exams.

Resuscitation medicine is arguably evolving into a subspecialty of medical care. With this course we provide the skills for you to develop expertise in this field.

The course is online, allowing you to study at your own pace and in your own time, enabling you to continue with your work commitments. We provide an excellent structured learning platform for trainees and specialists to develop skills in this area. Years 1 and 2 consist of 8 modules, each of 8 weeks. Each week 2-5 lectures are released, supplemented by weekly tutorials. Year 3 consists of a Masters dissertation with a dedicated lecture training package.

We welcome students from both overseas and the UK. The course is designed for trainees and consultants in emergency, pre-hospital and acute medicine, advanced nurse practitioners and critical care paramedics who wish to advance their knowledge in resuscitation medicine.
