Why study Critical Care MSc course at Queen Mary University of London?

With an aging population, the demand for qualified professionals in the field is increasing. There is a growing need for trainee doctors, specialist nurses and allied health professionals to deliver safe and effective patient care. This programme, aimed at clinicians and senior nurses working in Intensive Care Medicine, will give you the skills to advance your knowledge in the field.

The curriculum will be covered in a ‘taught course’ of 3 terms divided into modules. Three modules will be covered in each of the first and second term and two modules in the third term, thus there are 8 taught modules alongside (for students completing the full MSc programme) a 60-credit dissertation module. Each taught module accounts for 15 credits and each module takes 4 weeks to cover the taught materials including one or more module assignments.

On the residential course, teaching will mainly be in the form of lectures, with self-directed learning following these. Each module will be accompanied by a tutorial to consolidate the learning and answer any questions. There will also be a day of simulation training, as well as sessions with clinical exposure to patients on the ICU with ward round style teaching, X-ray and results interpretation. The observership module will provide further clinical exposure with the medical, nursing, outreach and allied health specialist teams.   

Following on from the above modules you will work on and complete a dissertation for the remainder of the programme. The project title and research / dissertation format will be agreed between yourself and the course organiser and may take the form of independent clinical research or a dissertation based on a literature/systematic review.

Occasionally, students may choose to omit the dissertation, completing the programme at the stage of postgraduate diploma.
